Welcome & Intro – what the session. I will be giving a brief intro to one of CR’s products, our plagiarism screening service CC.
CC is not a plagiarism detection service. CC is a plagiarism screening service that uses the iThenticate text comparison software that was developed by iParadigms. CC publishers are able to check and compare their documents against database of full text articles.
CC is a service for scholarly and professional publishers and publishers must join CrossRef or be an existing CR publisher member to sign up for CC. The first step is for members sign a license agreement with iParadigms to use their system. The next step is for the publisher to enable their content to be crawled by iParadigms; CR will tell iParadigms precisely what to crawl by providing a list of DOIs which point only to the DOI-indentified content. iParadigms is immediately informed of new content when DOIs are added. Even you aren’t ready to start checking documents, once your content is listed in the DB, other users can scan their documents and compare them to your content and detect if someone is plagiarizing ‘your’ content.
How does CC work. A user will upload the document they wish to check using the web-based iThenticate tool and chose to check against the CC database. The system will produce a ‘similarity report’ which shows the percentage of the document that matches other content in the DB, It will also show where it comes from, and gives a side by comparison with the matching content. At this point, an editor can review this matching content and can make a judgment on whether there has been a case of plagiarism.
The following are accepted formats for uploading your documents. As well as copy and paste option.
There are a number of reasons why a publisher would wish to use a plagiarism screening tool.
For a more detailed tour of the iThenticate document checking software that is central to CrossCheck, please join one of our upcoming demos. This hour long session will guide you through the iThenticate interface and is ideal if you are considering the service, or if you have already signed up and want to know more about the features available to you. Upcoming dates available on CR website.
Volume discounts, full pricing lists are available on our website.
