To improve the quality and meaningfulness of the search results, the Plagium Team has made several improvements for better assessments of plagiarism and text reuse.

These improvements include:
  1. Improved scoring and ranking order in the deep search results.
  2. Better Deep Search text reuse identification through highlighting of submitted text that Plagium has retrieved from the Internet.
  3. File uploads supporting ASCII text, PDF, and DOC formats.
All of these features are now available in Deep Search, File Search, and Alerts.

Please give the updated Plagium a try and let us know how you like it or problems you may have encountered.

File Uploads and Institutional Accounts Now Supported by Plagium

The Plagium Team is pleased to announce two major developments that are now available to Plagium users:

  1. File Uploads:  

    Plagium account holders can now upload PDF or txt documents to Plagium.  Simply select “check file” from the main menu (upper left drop-down menus) and follow the instructions.  Once the file is uploaded, Plagium will check for any reuse of the document’s text throughout the Web and other submitted documents.  Immediately upon loading the document, Plagium will indicate the approximate cost of performing the analysis.  If the user so choses  he / she may then decide not to proceed with the analysis and therefore not be charged for it.

  2. Institutional Accounts:

    Plagium users may now sign up for an institutional account.  These accounts assign an Administrator to the institution setting up the account.  The Administrator may then assign Plagium sub-accounts to individual users within the institution.  To keep costs to a manageable level, Administrators can restrict the amount of text each sub-account can analyze within a month.  The Administrators can also track Plagium usage by each sub-account   For a limited time, the Institutional Account feature will be free – charges will apply only to search credits purchased by the Administrator.  If the Institutional has many Plagium users, group discounts for search credit purchases will apply./

  3. Improved Alert system:

    The Plagium Alert system has been redesigned to produce more reliable and responsive alerts when identical or similar content is detect on the Web, compared to the text entered.  Plagium Alerts are an important tool not only for detecting unauthorized use of Web site content, but also for tracking the progress of syndicated articles.

The Plagium team is pleased to announce the transfer of its service to a newer, more powerful server.  The new hardware will:

1)    Provide faster results.
2)    Support more reliable operation of the APIs (for those users that have signed up to use the Plagium API library).
3)    Serve as a platform for the addition of newer, more computationally intensive services.

We hope you will agree that Plagium is running faster now.  As always, please let us know if you encounter problems or want to provide us with feedback.

Change in Plagium pricing

Dear Plagium Users:

Due to the highly elevated costs that we must now pay to Microsoft and Google for access to their search engines, we are regrettably forced to pass these costs onto our users.  Two adjustments to Plagium will therefore go into effect:

  1. Plagium’s Quick Search capability will remain free, but with a limit of five (5) searches per day.  Any additional searches in a 24 hour period will require the consumption of Search Credits.
  2. The usage of search credits has been modified in a manner that consumes more credits for each search.  However, we now provide notification to users of how many search credits a given search will consume.  The user may elect not to carry out the search to save credits.

For our occasional users of Plagium, the above changes should not have much impact.  However, we do apologize to our regular users for any inconvenience.
