Where can I submit my paper for plagiarism review?


You can use a tool called Grammarly to get feedback on plagiarism in your paper. Grammarly is a software that is free to Rasmussen students and staff. Not only will Grammarly check for plagiarism, it will also check for grammar, mechanics, spelling, and word usage.

Note - Grammarly's plagiarism review only checks against some internet sources and not books or articles. Grammarly does not scan content behind paywalls or requires a log-in (like library article databases).

  1. Log in to your Grammarly account: https://sso.grammarly.com/saml/login?ssoId=a6dbc8a3-f69c-4772-9ca2-a326d1332c8d  
  2. Once logged in, click "Go to Editor" in the upper right-hand corner of the web page.
  3. Click on the New option with the piece of paper icon.    
  4. Copy your paper and paste the contents into the Grammarly window
  5. A pop-up may appear asking you to set goals for the Grammarly review. You can close out of this since you are only using Grammarly to check for plagiarism.
  6. Click "Plagiarism" in the bottom right-hand corner of the web page.
  7. Grammarly may take a few minutes to scan the entire document for matches.
  8. Once the scan is complete, you will see that Grammarly tells you what percentage of the content it identified as matching with content from the internet. 
  9. It is very important to remember that Grammarly will identify text matches and does not identify actual plagiarism.  Grammarly does not know if the content includes a proper in-text citation to attribute where the information came from.
