Terms and definitions

Term

Definition

System "Antiplagiat" (service)

Online tool for working with text documents with user interface on the web-site.

Text similarity

A fragment of the document text that contains the text or a fragment of the source text and is not formatted in accordance with citation rules

Text recycling

A fragment of the document text that contains the text or a fragment of the source text, the author or co-author of which is the author of the checked document

Citation

A fragment of the document text that contains the text or a fragment of the source text and formatted in accordance with the rules of citation, with full bibliographic information about the source. Also citation includes common expressions, bibliography, fragments of text found in sources from the collections of regulatory documents.

Text similarity percentage

The proportion of all found similar text in relation to the total size of the checked document in characters

Text recycling percentage

The proportion of all found text recyclings in relation to the total size of the checked document in characters

Citation percentage

The proportion of all found citations in relation to the total size of the checked document in characters

Originality percentage

The proportion of all document text fragments that were not found in the sources used for check, in relation to the total size of the checked document in characters

Report

The result of checking the text for reuse:

  • Brief report - is a percentage of originality, list of text sources.
  • Full report - is a percentage of originality, list of text sources, the full text of the document, marked with found similarity text blocks.

Report share

The ratio of the amount of text similarity that is accounted for in this source to the total size of the document. That is, if the same text was found in several sources, it is considered only in one of them.

Text share

Ratio of the volume of the text similarity on this source to the total size of the document. Shares in the text are not summarized by sources.

Report blocks

The number of text similarity blocks from the source, taking into account the intersections of all found sources.

Text blocks

The number of text similarity blocks from a source without regard to other found sources.

Collection (search module)

The software module of the corporate version of the system "Antiplagiat", implementing the search for text reuse. The module uses a search index or a special computational algorithm to build reports. The system can have several collection. Search modules may differ in purpose, for example:

  • Internet search;
  • Citations;
  • Russian State Library (RSL) collection;
  • GARANT collection;
  • eLIBRARY collection;
  • National Library of Belarus (NLB) collection.

Once you have access to several search collections, you can build both individual reports and a single report for all search collections.

Some collections perform searches across specialized databases with the casts of the texts of the source documents, but to obtain access to the selected search module doesn't mean getting access to the full texts of the documents it can find this collection. In the received reports, links to the documents will be indicated (their names will also be given), and when viewing the source text, it will contain fragments that coincide with the document being checked.

Browser

Software that allows users to view pages on Internet sites and access files and software associated with those pages. For example, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.

Text metrics

Semantic characteristics for each uploaded document.

Purpose and conditions of use

The service is designed to check text documents for plagiarism. As a result of the scan, users receive text reuse reports. The report contains information on the sources and indicators of text similar to source, as well as detailed information with the indication of those fragments of the checked document that have been identified as text similarity. The identification is accompanied by the presentation of the matching text fragment of the borrowing source and/or the reference to the original (URL). As a result of the document check, the user can determine which part of the document is written independently and which part is reused.

To use the service you need:

  • Connect to the Internet;
  • Install a browser or use the browser of one of the most common types built into your operating system (MS Edge version 97 and above, Mozilla Firefox version 61 and above, Opera version 55 and above, Chrome version 68 and above).

The results of work with the system "Antiplagiat" are not the basis for claims of copyright violations, the service is aimed at use only for information purposes. In other words, we do not declare that a particular text is plagiarism, but only inform you about the presence of the same or similar text fragment. It is possible that when working with the service, you will find the text copied from other sources, including the possibility that the downloaded document is the original source. In any case, when working with the service, be careful, try to be objective and do not rush to conclusions. Remember that the service is only a tool of work, and only the user can give a real assessment to the document.

Workspace for private users

Document check

To upload documents for review, click the "Add document" button and select the files on your computer or drag and drop the documents you want to the "Add document" field.

Adding the document(s) (private users Workspace)

Please note that system has a limit for the number of symbols in one document. Documents which contain more than 2 million symbols are not checking. After uploading such documents error message will be displayed in Workspace.

Please note that at free rate plan you can upload only in PDF (with a text layer) and TXT formats. The size of the uploaded file should not exceed 15 MB. When you activate paid rate plan you will be able to upload the documents in formats: txt, html, htm, docx, doc, rtf, odt, pptx, pdf (including file without a text layer, OCR activation required), additional document check parameters described below will become available to you, and the maximum size of the downloaded file will increase to 20 MB.

Note: A text layer in a PDF is directly text data from a file that can be selected and transferred to another area for further processing as a set of characters, not as an image. A text layer in a PDF can be placed on top of other layers of the file, for example, on top of images. Please note that scans, photos and other images that depict printed characters are not a text layer. To check files containing images with printed characters, but not containing a text layer, you need to enable the Text Recognition (OCR) service

You can specify save and check options of the document and choose the modules which should be checked against the document on the "Parameters for checking" tab.

In addition to uploading individual files, it is possible to upload the archive in the format RAR, ZIP or 7z. In this case, all documents from the archive are processed separately.

Documents are checked taking into account the structure, you can include only the sections you need in the check. To exclude a section from the check, uncheck the box next to this section. Detailed information on each section will be available on the "Check Results" page in the "Document Structure" tab.

OCR - optical character recognition. The service allows you to check the text that is visible when viewing the document, but which is not a text layer (such text cannot be selected with the mouse). If the document contains graphic images with text data, they will be recognized and checked for originality.

Please note that when checking with OCR, the processing time of the document may increase. With OCR only the first 150 pages of the document are checked. The remaining pages will not be processed.

Check's parameters selection

Please note that it is prohibited to use ;<>=+&%#@[]{}~`®*\ symbols in the name of the document.

If you do not enter the parameters, the following default values will be applied to the document: the folder that was opened when viewing the user's Workspace is selected, the document type is not specified, the name is the file name, all possible check options will be set for the search modules (depending on the services connected by the company).

Next, click on the "Continue" button, the document will be added to the Workspace and sent for check. In the folder where the document was added, you will see the added document, in the line with the document will be the date of loading the document. After the check is complete, the check results appear in the row.

Text check

In some cases, it is more convenient and faster to use the text check function, click on the "Add text" button. In the form that opens, type or paste in the text field, select the collections that will be used to check the document, and then click "Continue".

To go to the "See Results" page, click the "See Results" button near the necessary document in the Workspace.

Automatically extracted authors from document's text

The system extracts up to 10 authors. The extracted authors are used to automatically calculate the indicator "Text recycling". Automatic calculation of the Text recycling percentage will be made within the eLIBRARY, RSL and NLB collections.

If the system has not extracted any author of the document, then in the document properties the "Document authors" fields will be highlighted in yellow. In this case, enter the author's name manually (see Manual adding the name of the document's author). The authors' names are required to calculate the indicator "Text recycling", and are also used to display information about the authors in verification certificate, printed and pdf-versions of reports.

Semantic characteristics

The system calculates and displays of various semantic characteristics for each uploaded document. This functionality allows you to evaluate the scientific nature of the text, determine the presence of special sections in the document, and calculate some indicators. The calculation takes place automatically when the document is loaded.

List of calculated semantic characteristics:

  • The share of scientific vocabulary. The indicator is from 0% to 100%, where 100% corresponds to a completely scientific text, and 0% corresponds to a completely unscientific text. The indicator is the ratio of words and phrases, included in «the dictionary of scientific terms and constructions»to the total number of words and phrases in the text being checked.
  • The share of the general vocabulary. The indicator is from 0% to 100%. The formula used to calculate is (100% - [Share of scientific vocabulary]).
  • The presence of an annotation.
  • The presence of conclusions.
  • The presence of an introduction.
  • The presence of a research method description.
  • The presence of a study results description.
  • Assessment of the coherence of the text. The indicator is from 0% to 100%, where 100% corresponds to perfectly connected text, and 0% corresponds to completely disconnected text. The coherence of the text is characterized by the syntactic and semantic coherence of its sentences. When determining the coherence of the text, an error may occur due to the document being checked using OCR and the presence of images in the document being checked.
