Grammarly catches plagiarism—before you get caught!
With online resources making it easier than ever to copy and paste text, plagiarism is on the rise in educational institutions. From middle school teachers to college professors, educators are cracking down on plagiarized text. Turning in papers with plagiarized content can result in failing grades and even expulsion, even if the mistake was unintentional.
Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker crosschecks your text against our huge database of web pages, detecting plagiarized passages before they get you into trouble. By comparing your work to billions of web pages, Grammarly’s software highlights the sections that have been previously published elsewhere. You can then fix the issue by either deleting the plagiarized text, paraphrasing it, or citing it as a quotation. Not sure how to cite your sources? Don’t worry; Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker has you covered.
Citations allow you to give credit to your sources. These references are typically listed at the end of a paper, and the formatting can be more than a little tricky. Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker can help you generate citations in the three most popular styles: MLA, APA, or Chicago.
MLA style, defined by the Modern Language Association, is most commonly used for humanities papers. APA, or American Psychological Association, is the standard for the sciences. The Chicago Manual of style is often used in general academic writing. Confused yet? Grammarly does it for you, saving you time, effort, and frustration.
As part of our innovative plagiarism checking feature, Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker not only discovers plagiarized content, but also pinpoints the origin of the text and offers a citation to acknowledge the original source.
Some of the most exciting and innovative features of Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker are the writing score and report. Every time you check text, Grammarly generates a writing score based on the number of errors—everything from common spelling mistakes to sophisticated usage issues—found in the document. The scores are based on a 100-point scale, giving you a “grade” each time you use Grammarly and allowing you to get an easy-to-understand snapshot of the current state of your writing.
For a more in-depth look at your score, the printable report breaks down the errors into five categories: Plagiarism, Contextual Spelling Check, Grammar, Punctuation, and Style and Word Choice. Categories containing errors are highlighted in red, making it easy for you understand at a glance where your strengths and weaknesses lie.
