Journals May Soon Use Anti-Plagiarism Software on Their Authors
This spring, academic journals may turn the anti-plagiarism software that professors have been using against their students on the professors themselves.
CrossRef, a publishing industry association, and the software company iParadigms announced a deal last week to create CrossCheck, an anti-plagiarism program for academic journals. The software uses the same technology as iParadigms' Turnitin, the program used by colleges to check student papers for copycat behavior.
