WISEflow uses a text similarity service to check all papers submitted in WISEflow. 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 external service. This happens automatically after hand in.
- Papers are sent off to the service about two hours after the individual participant period ends.
- Papers are tested by the service (takes a few hours) and are sent back to WISEflow.
- When the -button appears it is possible for the participant to hide the content of the paper, which means that the content is no longer accessible for others in URKUND. But this will not prohibit other papers from being checked for plagiarism against the paper.
