Results of Plagiarism Detection System Test 2010

Debora Weber-Wulff at the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin recently published the English translation of her 2010 test of 26 plagiarism detection services. “Prof. Dr. Debora Weber-Wulff, professor for media and computing at the University of Applied Sciences HTW Berlin has tested plagiarism detection systems in 2004, 2007, and 2008 and has published widely on the topic. In this fourth test series that was just completed at the end of 2010, 26 systems out of 47 available systems were closely examined. Particular focus was given to seeing how well the systems detect a known amount of plagiarism, and how they react when offered original material.”

“A test of 26 plagiarism detection systems has the top scorers detecting only 70% of the plagiarism for a grade of C-.”  See the results at http://plagiat.htw-berlin.de/software-en/2010-2/
