WISEflow uses a plagiarism service to check the 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.).
Papers handed in on FLOWassign and FLOWlock are sent to the plagiarism service. This happens automatically after hand in.
- Papers are sent off to the plagiarism service about two hours after the individual participant period ends.
- Papers are tested by the plagiarism service (takes a few hours) and are sent back to WISEflow.
- When the -button appears it is possible for the participant to remove the paper from the URKUND database which means that the paper is no longer accessible in URKUND. But this will not prohibit other papers from being checked for plagiarism against the paper.
