Welcome the first Live Plagiarism Map
We are proud to present you a Live Plagiarism Map. For the very first time, everyone interested can look, interact and see actual live statistical information about the occurrence of plagiarism around the globe.
The map is colour-coded, so you, at first glance, would be able to see in which countries plagiarism is most-prevalent and where it is less occurring. Green tones indicate a “purer” content with less plagiarism, yellow tones – middle of the pack, red ones – a significant spread of plagiarism.
What data is included in the Live Plagiarism Map
The Live Plagiarism Map is created by evaluating the last 5 million documents which were uploaded to the service from around the world. Most of the documents are study papers and research papers.
The map has tools to help everyone navigate through and analyse the information at hand. Seeing what’s what is made very simple. Even if you are viewing the map for the first time, you will notice that Russians tend to plagiarise 2.5 times more than Americans. Interested what is going on with your country? Scroll over and get your most up-to-date answer within seconds.
Our plagiarism map is “live”, meaning that it is continuously being updated with the most recent and up-to-date statistics. Our robots regularly gather data from users, monitor other statistical databases and compile it here, for every user to see. Scroll the mouse on your country to see whether copycats have a safer haven here or in the neighbouring country.
