How do I check a document in Sistemantiplagiat.ro?

Sistemantiplagiat.ro operates on an ASP model (i.e. it is a web-based system that does not require the user to download any system files).

The user can only log in to their account via the Sistemantiplagiat.ro website (to access your account fill in the fields in the top right-hand corner of the homepage or create a new account).

How do I interpret the Similarity Report?

When analysing a Similarity Report you should remember that:

  • The Sistemantiplagiat.ro Similarity Report is only a tool. The System mechanically detects similarities to other documents and provides a result that should then be analyzed by a competent person to ascertain whether citations have been properly marked and annotations made. The Similarity Coefficient alone cannot be considered a definite measure of copyright infringement.
  • Sistemantiplagiat.ro does not analyse which document was created first. The document that was submitted to the System earlier is treated as a source. Therefore the Similarity Report cannot be considered when deciding which file is the original and which is the copy.
  • The methods of similarity detection used by the System sometimes cause commonly used or standardised phrases with specialised terminology to be highlighted as alleged plagiarism. This interference, however, should not influence the Similarity Rate more than 5%. Therefore, documents with a Similarity Coefficient that is lower than 5% should be considered as “clean”, unless an analysis of the Report proves otherwise. The System can show a hypersensitivity to commonly used phrases.

Is the work submitted to Sistemantiplagiat.ro safe?

Yes, it is. We comply to the following rules:

  • The document is visible ONLY to the user of the account from which it was submitted for analysis.
  • Each account is protected by a unique password.
  • The ONLY possibility to access the Similarity Report of a document that is considered similar is with the consent of the user who submitted it (applicable only to users of subscription accounts).
  • We do not make the personal data of individual users accessible under any circumstances.
  • The personal data of subscription accounts users is accessible only upon obtaining written consent from the university authorities and the account owner. The employees of Sistemantiplagiat.ro have no influence over such decisions.
  • The personal data of individual account users will NEVER be divulged to third persons under ANY circumstances.

What does the Similarity Coefficient exactly mean?

It is an indicator in the Sistemantiplagiat.ro Similarity Report, obtained after dividing the number of words from an analysed document but detected in other sources by the total number of words in that document.

What does the Similarity Coefficient 2 indicate?

What does the Similarity Coefficient 2 indicate? The Similarity Coefficient 2 is a parameter that can be set individually by each client, it is displayed in the Similarity Report as well as on the Documents console. It is calculated using the same method as the Similarity Coefficient 1 (that is by calculating the percentage of words in the document that have been found in other sources). However the Similarity Coefficient 2 is calculated using only the words in fragments longer than a value defined by the client (such as 25 words). In this way the Similarity Coefficient 2 defines the percentage of the document that should be within quotation marks. The theory being that it is possible to use the same wording as a different author in a short fragment but impossible to write a long fragment that is identical to another text without it being a quote or a plagiarism. Fragments that exceed the Similarity Coefficient limit can be found listed in bold in the Similarity Report.

How long is a Token valid?

Tokens are valid 6 months from the moment of purchase. The SMS code, used to finalise the token purchase (via SMS) is valid for two weeks. The token and the code can only be used once.

Is there a guarantee that all similar fragments will be detected?

There is no guarantee that all the similarities will be detected. Sistemantiplagiat.ro looks for similar content in the databases that are available. We can guarantee detection for all similarities in the databases available to the system, but for internet resources we cannot guarantee 100% detection because it has a dynamic structure which we cannot control.

Does Sistemantiplagiat.ro ignore quotations and footnotes?

For documents checked in individual accounts, the system does not ignore quotations or footnotes, therefore there is the possibility that they will be detected in other sources and marked accordingly.

For institutional users, the system marks quotations differently in the text, it gives a quotation coefficient and it can also ignore the bibliography during the analysis.

What type of database does Sistemantiplagiat.ro use?

Through individual account the system compares documents with the internet resources.

Through institutional accounts the system can compare with:

  • Internet Resources – all open access texts and files available on the internet;
  • Internal Database – created by adding documents to the beneficiary’s database;
  • External Databases – of other institutions that use our system;
  • RefBooks – created by our company, contains over 3 million texts and publications from all scientific and cultural subjects;
  • Legal Database – contains all Romanian and European law.

Does Sistemantiplagiat.ro analyze text in different languages?

Yes, Sistemantiplagiat.ro can analyze and detect similarities in documents written in any language that uses alphabets such as Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, etc. It is also adapted for the special characters of languages such as Italian, Greek, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Romanian, Arabic, Georgian, Bulgarian, Azerbaijani, Ukrainian, Portuguese, Croatian, Turkish, French, Dutch, etc.

Is it possible to obtain different results for the same document?

It is possible due to the dynamic structure of the internet. Usually the differences are quite low (1-3%), but in rare, specific cases the difference can be bigger.
