A text-matching system with Author Recognition for the ultimate originality check​

Ouriginal brings together the combined expertise of Urkund and PlagScan’s plagiarism detection, spanning over two decades. It is a similarity detection software that combines text-matching with author recognition for the ultimate originality check.

Ouriginal can be seamlessly integrated into your current workflow, whether you use it through a learning management system (LMS) or as a stand-alone product.

How does Ouriginal work?

Document submission

The document that needs to be checked can be submitted in one of three ways – through your school’s existing learning platform, by attaching and sending it in as an email or through an API. The system accepts files in a wide variety of file formats including .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .sxw, .ppt, .pdf, .html, and many more. The text is then extracted from the document and the processing begins irrespective of the language in which it has been written.

Retrieval of sources

The text is analyzed, and the system begins to check for possible text similarities or matches from our archives containing sources from the wider internet, academically published material (licensed documents, reference works, etc.), and previously submitted student material. Potential results of text similarity are studied in depth and any findings are saved.

Analysis powered by sophisticated algorithms

When the system finds similarities in the text, it not only records the degree of the matches but also considers any paraphrasing and usage of synonyms as well as any evidence of ghost writing and contract cheating. Our algorithms work regardless of language and can detect similarities across most widely used languages.

Report creation and delivery

At the end of the review process, an analysis report is generated and delivered to the reviewer – via the learning platform, or by email or through the web inbox. The results of the analysis are presented in an easy-to-read format so that the reviewer can make the final decision on whether any plagiarism has occurred or not. It is important to bear in mind that the percentage of text-matches shown at the top of the report is in no way an absolute indication of plagiarism. The final decision rests on the evaluation and interpretation of the reviewer.
