Plagiarism is defined as the use or close imitation of another author’s work, which has been claimed as your own. Be warned, if your university accuses you of plagiarism, you could face losing your place or suffer reduced marks. To avoid plagiarism, you should always reference correctly according to your institution’s guidelines and use Viper. Viper is fast becoming the plagiarism checker of choice with over 10 billion resources scanned and an easy interface which highlights potential areas of plagiarism in your work.
Our anti-plagiarism software is used by teachers, lecturers and students worldwide to detect instances of plagiarism in academic work, such as essays, dissertations and pieces of coursework. Are you a student? Use the software to find out: if you’ve missed a reference, or incorrectly cited a sentence; if you’ve mixed notes from a book or journal in with your own; if you’ve plagiarized, even accidentally, a piece of your own work. Are you a teacher/lecturer? Use the software to find out if a student has: cheated by plagiarizing off the Internet; plagiarized a piece of their own work; copied work off of a friend, or other pupil. Can you afford not to use our free plagiarism scanner? Now you can select a writer to proofread, edit or grade your essay from within Viper, directly.
The program froze as soon as you tried to scan a doc. Turns out, this is something to do with my using Endnote referencing software which uses hidden ‘field codes’ in your document. Viper somehow changes the settings on word so that it displays the field codes . If anyone else has this problem, once you have recovered from your minor heart failure you can change this back by going to word> tools> options> view, untick field codes. I’m hoping the program hasn’t changed any other settings.
