Plagiarism, while often unintentional and accidental, is considered a serious ethical misstep, one that can undermine the credibility of research outcomes, harm your reputation, and erode academic integrity.

This is where Paperpal comes in to help safeguard your research. Today, Paperpal is proud to introduce its online plagiarism checker that empowers authors to achieve high quality, original work with the best chance of success. By adding a plagiarism detector to its AI writing toolkit, Paperpal addresses a crucial step in the academic writing process, furthering its goal of providing students, educators, and researchers with comprehensive real-time writing support in one place.

To ensure we’re offering authors the best plagiarism checker, we conducted extensive benchmarking. In one benchmarking comparison between Paperpal and two other online tools, Quillbot and Grammarly, we tested 20 passages, containing a mix of original content as well as text lifted from published sources. We evaluated whether the tools could correctly detect original content as well as text copied from published sources. 

The benchmark analysis found that Paperpal had the most reliable similarity check, with 90% accurate similarity detection, correctly detecting whether the passage was original in 18 of the 20 samples. In comparison, Quillbot’s plagiarism check detected 14 paragraphs (70% accuracy) and Grammarly only 11 (55% accuracy).

How it Works: 4 Steps to Write More Responsibly with Paperpal

For those who are writing original content or using AI writing tools to polish their work, it’s important to note that the text could be flagged in a plagiarism check. This makes it important to run a similarity check and address any problem areas highlighted by the plagiarism detector. Here’s a simple step by step guide by Paperpal to help you write more responsibly. 

STEP 1: Check your writing for similarity

Even when you’ve written original content and cited your sources, it’s recommended to run your work through the plagiarism check as a precaution. This can help pre-empt a situation where your institution or journal flags your paper for overlooked citations or similarity to certain sources. 

STEP 2: Review report for actionable items

Once your paper is processed, carefully review the similarity report. Check the overall similarity score and review sentences with a high score against other sources. Examine each flagged source thoroughly to see if it is relevant to your work and identify all the problem areas that need to be addressed.  

STEP 3: Write in your own voice

Some similarity is not unusual! Commonly used phrases, especially in the methods section, may bump up the similarity score. It’s important to add variety in your text, which is where Paperpal’s Rewrite features can help, but remember to refine AI-generated text to retain your unique style and authentic voice. 

STEP 4: Cite any overlooked sources

Even when you’re writing on a novel topic, it’s prudent to contrast and validate your writing in the context of related published literature. If any publication is flagged as similar to your text, and it is relevant to your research work, you’ll need to address this. When using exact wording from another paper, use quotation marks and cite these works meaningfully in your paper.

3. What types of documents can I upload?

We support doc, docx, and PDF files at the moment and expect to support additional file types soon. 

4. Can Paperpal ensure that my content is not flagged by plagiarism or AI detection tools?

Neither Paperpal nor Copilot are designed to avoid detection by plagiarism and AI detection software. Using them doesn’t guarantee your content will be plagiarism-free. In fact, if you incorporate text from published sources without proper citation, those sections will likely be flagged regardless of the writing tool.  If any of your input text to the Paperpal Copilot AI was pasted from a published source, there will be a higher likelihood of the generated result being flagged as similar. Always cite the sources you’ve quoted in your work and incorporate a thoughtful analysis on how those works relate to your own article. In fact, AI-generated outputs may have high similarity to published works because the outputs may be based on published sources in the model’s training dataset.  

Paperpal is an AI writing assistant that help academics write better, faster with real-time suggestions for in-depth language and grammar correction. Trained on millions of research manuscripts enhanced by professional academic editors, Paperpal delivers human precision at machine speed.
