WISEflow uses the tool Urkund or Ephorus (depending on the license) to check submitted papers for plagiarism. The papers will be tested to see if they contain passages of text that also appear elsewhere (internet, library databases, papers handed in by others etc.).
You cannot opt a paper out of the plagiarism check. However, it is possible for the author of a paper to define whether Urkund is allowed to check if material in the uploaded paper is used for plagiarism elsewhere. That is, if passages of text have been copied passages from one's response into new responses submitted by anyone other than oneself.
If you want assurance that your paper cannot be plagiarized, you can opt-out it out of the document pool on the flow page of the specific exam, the day after the submission deadline. In some cases, you will also receive a receipt directly from Urkund where the possibility to opt-out is also available.
Note: This will not prohibit other papers on the flow from being plagiarised against the paper or your paper from being tested for plagiarism.
- Papers are sent off to the plagiate service two hours after the participant period concludes.
- Plagiate is tested by the plagiate service (takes a few hours) and is sent back to Wiseflow.
- The -button appears, allowing the participant to remove the paper from the Urkund database.
