6. Dustball Plagiarism Checker from University of Maryland
Dustball Plagiarism Checker was created by a University of Maryland student in 2002. Brian Klug created the system which allows users to paste entire papers into a search box, rather than picking and choosing segments. The premium version has a $8 subscription fee, but it supposedly has increased accuracy and gives users the option to upload Microsoft Word documents to be scanned.
Plagiarisma has two options for users to take advantage of – there is a search box option or a software download for Windows. Users can also choose from URLs, files in HTML, DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT, ODT, or PDF formats to search and scan.
Formerly known as Duplichecker, PlagiarismSoftware.net is as easy they come. Using a simple search box and checker to search for text or upload TXT files.
CheckForPlagiarism.net’s service can scan papers in several languages and allows users to compare papers. While the service is supposedly between 35% and 70% lower in average cost than other competitors. It offers a basic $20 account meant for high school students, but only allows up to five document scans.
