WISEflow uses external text similarity services to check papers submitted in WISEflow according to your institutional subscription (e.g. Urkund, Turnitin). The papers will be tested to see if they contain passages of text that also appear in other sources (internet, library databases, papers handed in by others etc.). Information on any matches found is then available to assessors.
Papers handed in on FLOWassign and FLOWlock are sent to the plagiarism service approximately two hours after the participation period ends.
Adjusting paper visibility in Urkund
- 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 you can hide the content of your paper, meaning that the content is no longer accessible for others in Urkund. However, this does not prohibit other papers from being checked against this paper.
