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).
- Log in to your Grammarly account: https://sso.grammarly.com/saml/login?ssoId=a6dbc8a3-f69c-4772-9ca2-a326d1332c8d
- Once logged in, click "Go to Editor" in the upper right-hand corner of the web page.
- Click on the New option with the piece of paper icon.
- Copy your paper and paste the contents into the Grammarly window
- 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.
- Click "Plagiarism" in the bottom right-hand corner of the web page.
- Grammarly may take a few minutes to scan the entire document for matches.
- 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.
- 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.
