How does Ouriginal work?

Document submission

Documents can be submitted through your school’s existing learning platform, or by attaching and sending it in as an email or through an API. The system accepts files in a wide variety of file formats including .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .sxw, .ppt, .pdf, .html, and many more.


Retrieval of sources

The text is analyzed, and the system begins to check for possible text similarities or matches from our database containing sources from the wider internet, academically published material (licensed documents, reference works, etc.), and previously submitted student material.


Analysis powered by sophisticated algorithms

When the system finds similarities in the text, it not only records the degree of the matches but also considers any paraphrasing and usage of synonyms as well as any evidence of ghost writing and contract cheating. Our algorithms work regardless of language and can detect similarities across most widely used languages.


Report creation and delivery

An analysis report is generated at the end providing insights into textual matches in a reliable and easy-to-understand format. The percentage of matching text shown at the top of the report is in no way an absolute indication of plagiarism. The final decision rests on the evaluation and interpretation of the reviewer.
