How do the Customers Benefit

All in one plagiarism checking solution

In the current industry, two types of product for plagiarism checking are available: plagiarism checker for the study process (I) and plagiarism checker for the research process (II).

These products differ by databases which are used in document verification. For the study process, the standard databases (web archives, news, magazines. encyclopedias) are used. For the research process databases of scholarly articles are used.

The main benefit of Oxsico is the provision of plagiarism checker for both study and research processes as a single service. For comparison, to achieve the same scope with iParadigms, you will need to obtain two different services: iThenticate and Turnitin.

Cost-effective plagiarism checker

By offering the plagiarism checking service for both study and research processes as a single service, we can deliver the cost-friendly solution. With Oxsico, you no longer need to purchase separate services for students and researchers. Acquiring two services at once leads to a significant reduction in costs for your institution.

Benefits for your organization

It is a benefit proven psychologically, but its effect is not visible immediately after. This will be a long and marathon-like process but will build significant value.

More involved academic community, students will include themselves in the studies much more than before

Some Facts About Plagiarism

Roughly one out of three students plagiarise and have admitted to doing so. If we count in the human factor of not recognising the fact that they have plagiarised something, the number is going to be higher. Some estimates claim that it is closer to 50 or even 60%.

The most prominent source of plagiarised content is the internet (~90%).

Around 80 to 85% of the students who admitted to plagiarism claimed that they were not caught or have not received any punishment.

Almost all of the students who admit to plagiarism (~95%) knew that they did something wrong. This shows awareness and indicates that the choice to plagiarise content or copy work was the last resort or a result of troubling circumstances.

Students Who Admitted To Plagiarism:

Close to 65% – cheated on a test by copying notes or someone else’s answers.

Around 60% – claimed that plagiarised content made up a significant part of at least one of their assignments.

Almost 97% – agreed to the fact that they plagiarised or copied homework answers, answers on a test or cheated.

Only 16% – told that they were caught doing so or after doing so and were punished. Most punishments, however, were nullified tasks or requests to rewrite. Less than 1% of the students received severe penalties like suspension or got expelled.

Even though there is no official data, some smaller surveys and researches tell that plagiarism numbers increased about 10% over the past 16 years.
