How to avoid trouble because of AntiPlagiarism.NET?
Many students, especially freshmen, have writing problems with reports, term papers and other scholarly works. In order to write a good paper, an undergraduate needs the special skills in handling and arranging information. It’s not enough to copy some paragraphs regarding your topic from any book to make your paper done. This scholarly work won’t be considered to be original and will actually be just a summary of other person’s work. But there’s another way to make your paper better. You can choose information from several sources, copy essential parts and put them all together. People often think that it’s easier to use a paper from the Internet and represent adapted text with borrowed ideas as their own one. However, it’s not that simple…
AntiPlagiarism.NET system was created to catch such unlucky students in plagiarizing. It has been successfully operating since 2010. Let’s get to know how it works. AntiPlagiarism.NET checks any texts for plagiarized parts. There is no surprise that the system has become really popular among teachers during the first year. This software is designed to encourage students to write their own texts and make them stop cheating. It’s also a great chance to improve quality of education.
This software works in a simple way: it’s enough to install software, open it and download the document into the special window. It can be term paper or something else. AntiPlagiarism.NET looks for the similar texts in the web and in a few seconds outputs the result: whether the text is original or stolen. The links to the real authors are also included. It’s not that easy to cheat the system. Word-matching is performed by comparing symbol sequences and doesn’t count the language features. Also, AntiPlagiarism.NET works with any languages, but first of all English and Russian texts are checked. The system processes HTML, RTF, PDF, TXT, DOC, ODT and DOCX formats, collects the information from the websites and publicly available and indexed research papers, and scholarly works databases. If we take the search engines’ indexes, there are more than a billion of sources in AntiPlagiarism.NET database!
How to protect yourself against AntiPlagiarism.NET? Of course, the best way is to write your own paper. The information handling difficulties may occur only while composing the papers that are relevant to the subject for the first time. As soon as you train yourself to set out ideas clearly and carefully (and not to copy them), any antiplagiarism system won’t catch you. First, you try to read some small text selections from the different sources with the same topic. Secondly, you should analyze the authors’ thoughts and check if there are any contradictions. You also consider how these text selections can supplement each other and become single text with the topic you need.
After that, you start writing using the material you’ve found. If you have troubles while expressing thoughts and you have to refer to the initial text, you should try to change it in a way where more than three words in a row aren’t used. It may be difficult to do, especially if you deal with the text that is full of specific unreplaceable terms. To prevent this, it’s better to use different cases and the prepositions, and exchange the word places. You’re welcome to use opportunities provided by AntiPlagiarism.NET for checking the uniqueness of the primary sources. If you quote something directly from someone’s paperwork and mention the author’s name, it isn’t plagiarism. You should always do your best to make your papers unique. In this case, the hurtful word ‘plagiarism’ won’t be applicable to your texts!
