anti-plagiarism software

Software that searches the Web for duplicate textual content. It may be a stand-alone program installed in the user's computer or a function of a website, such as www.turnitin.com. Universities increasingly use anti-plagiarism software to determine if students have copied someone else's prose, and writers use it to see if others are using their copyrighted work in full or in part. See plagiarism and Rogeting.
