Credit where credit's due: plagiarism screening in scholarly publishing
Abstract:Plagiarism is not a new problem in academic publishing, but in the age of the Internet and digital publishing it would appear that it may be a growing one. Not only is there more literature available, but it has never been easier to search online databases, publisher websites, and institutional repositories. And as the content and its availability grows, so the ability of the reviewer to have read everything in their field diminishes, and detecting unoriginal content becomes harder. In response to this problem, CrossRef has launched CrossCheck (http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck.html), a plagiarism detection service for scholarly publishers.
