This case study reports on the results of implementing the CrossCheck plagiarism software. In the first six months, slightly less than 2% of submissions were refused on the grounds of unacceptable duplication. 3% were returned to authors for rephrasing, paraphrasing or adding citations. Most authors complied. Tools such as CrossCheck are a valuable resource. Our goal is to educate our authors, not punish them.
