Best citation generator!

It is such a helpful asset for me when writing numerous papers and having to cite so many sources. It truly was a blessing when I found Scribbr, I couldn't tell you how difficult it was to have to wrestle with other sites that would have citation limitations, or having to watch ads to generate another citation.

Feedback, attention to detail, the CARE! All amazing.

The feedback I got on my writing (I submitted a personal statement for admissions to grad schools) was personalized, detailed, and tailored exactly to what I asked for when I submitted it. I got the opportunity to ask questions about specific parts, ask the editor to look at theme, tone, organization, and voice— all of which is something I struggle to do well with. Not only were ALL of my questions and concerns were addressed, but the way they were addressed was so.... human? Yeah, human. It was so clear that there was a human reading my paper that was consuming it as a human, not as a robot or a computer. She made sure it was alive, and that it was me. That’s exactly what I asked for. I got another edit within the same week, and I got the same wonderful editor, and since then, she welcomed me to email her questions (I have!!) and she responded SO quickly and thoroughly even though she wasn’t “on the clock” anymore. Can’t recommend enough.

Good Plagiarism Checker, But...

I used the plagiarism checker service to inspect one of my final projects for my PG course. I can say that it definitely works and provides a very comprehensive similarity report, which includes all the parts (including the sources) that match another piece of already published work (e.g., books, scientific journals, academic websites...etc.). The database is definitely huge. The similarity report can also be downloaded, which is a big plus! However, I have two main criticisms. The first one is that compared to the report generated by the plagiarism checker of my institution (which I believe is also powered by Turnitin), it missed out on some bits of texts. Although these were referenced properly, this leads me to believe that it may actually miss out on some potentially plagiarised texts. My second criticism is that the report often highlights random bits of text. Although this can be partially solved by excluding small matches, it still bumps up your similarity score, making you believe that you have plagiarised even if you have not! The price is rather steep too, in my opinion. I think you could try to implement more incremental pricing. For example, the price is the same whether you use 7,500 or 50,000 words. However, I have personally heard great things about the proofreading and editing services so I may try them out in the future. Thanks for reading my feedback! EDIT: Thank you for the tips. I appreciate the full refund and the top notch customer service.

It seems that the editor paid utmost attention while reviewing my manuscript. And it boosted up my confidence to submit my paper in an indexed journal. If i had an opportunity, I would give my editor 10 out of 10.

The team is 24/7 available for your questions.

Frequently asked questions

Will my document be published on a (public) database?

No, the Scribbr Plagiarism Check does not result in your document being published in any public database (unlike many other free plagiarism checker services).

As soon as you’ve received the result from the Plagiarism Checker, you can directly delete all details and documents from the Scribbr server.

Which sources are used for the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker, in partnership with Turnitin, compares your document against the largest and fastest-growing content database in the world:

  • Over 70 billion current and historical web pages.
  • Over 69 million journal articles and books from more than 1,700 publishers such as Springer, IEEE, Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell and Taylor & Francis.

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker does not have access to Turnitin’s global database with student papers. Only your university can add and compare submissions to this database.

In your plagiarism report you can see the database in which the original source is found.

Turnitin Similarity Report

When should I use the Own Sources Checker instead of the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker compares your document against the largest plagiarism database in the world. It will detect any similarities with documents in that database.

However, you might be unsure if all of the sources you used are in that database – for example, because some of your sources are unpublished. In this case, you can make use of our Own Sources Checker. Here you can add all the sources you want to a private database and compare them with your own document.

How long does the Scribbr Plagiarism Check take?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker needs approximately 10 minutes to process your document. This time is needed to compare your paper with a massive database with billions of web pages and publications. Documents larger than 35.000 words can take a bit longer.

We will send you an e-mail when the check is finished!

Can I check my document for plagiarism multiple times?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker will only check your document for plagiarism once. Don’t worry – if you have followed our guide, as well as our articles on preventing plagiarism and citing sources, there is no need to perform a second plagiarism check.

Keep in mind that if you try to avoid plagiarism by paraphrasing, you still need to include a reference to the original source.

If you still want to perform a second plagiarism check, you’ll have to buy a new check at the regular price.

Will I get a 100% match at my school when I use the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

We understand this concern. However, since the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker does not store any documents that it checks in a shared database, it’s impossible for this to happen.

As an added precaution, you can also personally delete your details and documents from Scribbr’s own server as soon as you’ve received the results of your Plagiarism Check.

Will the results be the same as the results of the check used at my school?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker is optimized for students, which means that you will receive a detailed report with extra information to fix and avoid plagiarism, similar to the report received by your school.

Minor difference

Universities often have their own database of (prior) theses. Scribbr has no access to those databases. When you copy data from another thesis that is not publicly accessible, the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker will neither be able to detect plagiarism nor identify the source of this data.

However, most papers are actually publicly accessible since many universities and schools have public databases. This means that the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker is able to find these papers.
