Is there a (free) service that checks plagiarism?
I am finishing a very long paper and I would like to check it. It could be that I forgot to give credits to a source or so and I want to make this sure, before I hand it in to my advisor and he checks it.
theres grammerly.com...I used that one in grad school/and actually theres a lot that are free...grammerly checker is another one/
I am impressed with paperrater.com and can recommend it. But remember that when plagiarism is checked for free, the database might not be as comprehensive as a paid for plagiarism service. Plagiarism is not only about referencing sources but also about paraphrasing.
Yes, you can use Copyscape. I have found it to be very helpful. You can sign up for alerts. It is free. It doesn't catch everything, but is concise and gives live links to the found sites. Go to their website, copyscape.com.
There are a few online sources, but they don't check for proper citations and properly quoting sources. Just do a search for plagiarism checkers and see what's out there. FYI - at least one of them stores your paper in its system and has it available for future checkers. I don't know how I feel about that - with proper citations, etc., the work and the research is your property.
One program will tell you the ratio of the paper that comes from other sources, compared to the ratio of original writing. But it's up to you to make certain you cited things properly, paraphrased appropriately and referenced things to a good bibliography.
Kudos to you for caring enough to check if it's done the right way! I teach at a university, and far too many students do not take that seriously, and are not fluent in citations.
Just google free plagiarism checker and you will get a ton of them.

Can we add Copyscape every time we post anew hub? I believe this can prevent plagiarism. Thanks!
