Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them as one's own. There are two types of plagiarism:
Intentional Plagiarism: when someone knowingly presents someone else’s ideas, research, words and work as their own.
Unintentional Plagiarism: credit for another person’s ideas, research and words is not given properly when these are incorporated in one's work. Main sources of unintentional plagiarism are:
- failing to cite your sources correctly,
- not citing paraphrased information.
have no control whether someone uses our tools for intentional plagiarism, at Leapian, we take active steps towards ensuring that our products are contributing to
reducing unintentional plagiarism. We achieve this by:
- attaching bibliographic information to each piece of information that is extracted from a document;
- automatically copying citation information when pieces of information originating from documents are exported (even if the content has been paraphrased),
- developing natural language processing algorithms to detect whether text should be cited.
