Plagiarism Software: Not Just For Students Anymore
from the everybody's-copying dept
We recently had an article about the type of universities that use anti-plagiarism software to catch student cheaters. Of course, now universities are realizing that it’s not just the students they should be watching. With recent high profile authors being caught plagiarizing works and with new federal guidelines that say the university that employs a professor who plagiarizes material can lose federal grant funding… suddenly those software products are being pointed at the professors. Does anyone know how good these products are? I’m still curious about what their rate of “false positives” are?
