WISEflow uses Urkund as plagiarism service. The text comparison (percentage) will be visible to external and internal assessors per default on the flow overview. The percentage appears in the participant list by each name and also in the assessor tool.
By clicking the percentage a new pane will open and the report is displayed. The report contains different information regarding the submitted paper.
The original content that is plagiarised can be found in three different source areas: The Internet, published material and student material. The common denominator in all three categories is that they contain an immense and ever-increasing amount of source references, which makes it close to impossible for teachers to find it unaided.
The Internet contains billions of pages with various content; everything from material published by universities and colleges to government agency material, press articles, books, reference works and much more. There are also specific cheat sites online with ready-produced material.
A quantity of the material available on the Internet is only accessible through password-protected systems; hence, it cannot be located with the aid of an ordinary search engine. There is also a plethora of search engines, each of which with its own coverage. Furthermore, there is a huge amount of material on the Internet that cannot be found using regular search engines. URKUND manages to find sources through all mentioned above.
Published material consists of hundreds of millions of books, reference works, scientific articles, and so forth. Some material is accessible electronically via specific databases, whilst other material can only be found in the printed format. URKUND has formed strategic partnerships with a number of leading information providers.
Plagiarism is, of course, also prevalent between students themselves. Examples of this are that a student may plagiarise material from someone who has previously studied the same courses, at the same or at another school, or that through means of close collaboration, two students may copy each other’s’ work prior to a submission. As a rule, such student material is generally not published. Consequently, it cannot be searched for on the Internet or in published material.

1: Document information
This is the document information box. It shows who submitted what to whom and when. The document information box gives access to the original document which opens locally in your text editor. Any message can be read in full simply by clicking the link. The quantitative significance score is dynamic and will recalculate when you activate og deactivate blocks or sources. The new value will not transfer back to WISEflow if used and remains only for the browser session.
2. List of sources
This is the list of sources found when checking the document for similarities. Primary sources have a blue rank, while alternative sources for text already covered by primary sources are grey.
The sources can be viewed either as a list with the most used source at the top (A), or as blocks in falling order as they appear in the document (B). A source can be expanded + to show all (C). The original source can be opened by clicking the link (D). Sources or individual highlights within sources can be activated og deactivated from the List of sources or Blocks view (E). This will recalculate the quantitative significance score.
"Sources not used" are those that were suggested in the initial scan, but later showed not to have a qualitative score high enough to warrant a highlight.

This is the document side of the analysis. It shows the text from the submitted paper and indicates in the margin where there are passages that have been found elsewhere. Note that this is not necessarily at the start of the document. Any additional similarities found are marked with a colored bar in the margin.
The percentage in the corner of a block indicates how similar a particular text is to the text in the source. The # number indicates which block it is.
Note: Please note that this field only shows the text from the paper. Images, tables and other media components have been removed.
