An article in today’s online version of Campus Technology catches my eye: “Tackling Plagiarism” by Bridget McCrea.CampusTech-p2

The article deals with Brevard Community College’s decision to adopt Turnitin as an anti-plagiarism tool. I’m pleased to see that the College realises that it is a tool, that the reports it generates do need further checking by teachers, that matches are not necessarily indicative of plagiarism.

But I am puzzled by a statement made on screen two of the article:

Other online plagiarism tools include and CopyScape, both of which help individuals determine whether the documents they are reviewing are original and/or properly cited. Cobb said BCC’s IT department worked with individual faculty members – English composition, literature, and speech instructors, in particular – to select the anti-plagiarism tool and get it set up and ready to use.

What concerns me is that (1) is not an online plagiarism tool, it is a customwritingdotcompaper mill which sells custom-written papers (guaranteed to be plagiarism-free!), while (2) the link to Copyscape does NOT take you to Copyscape but to does claim to check for text matches, but is not one to be recommended – just the opposite.

Very odd.

  2. Experienced teachers will definitely notice plagiarism in your research paper if there is some. To be sure that you will pass an academic paper excellent it is better to order it on a reliable site and obtain 100% original work from professional writers

  3. I am extremely concerned about the fact that students cheat with impunity when writing academic papers.
    Nowadays there is a huge amount of services that for a small fee, write essays, term papers, dissertations on any topic
    scholarship essay writing service
    inequality essays
    dead poets society essay
    essay about obesity
    helping essay
    And this is not the limit. They irresponsibly writes the very high-quality work, so that in the future, do not be surprised if treated in hospital you will be treated not by a doctor, but an imposter. It is sad
