How to check my term paper for plagiarism

With the use of internet increasing so much, the chances of people plagiarizing also increases. A lot of times plagiarism by students is unintentional but if you are caught guilty of plagiarism in your term paper there isn’t much you can do about it at that time except try to convince your teacher that the plagiarism was unintentional and pray that he/she will believe you.

Therefore it is always better to check your work for plagiarism yourself. This way if there is any plagiarism found in your term paper you can remove it before it’s too late.

Below are a few steps that you can take to ensure that your work is clean of any unintentional plagiarism.

Have many sources

When you take any references from someone else’s work make sure that it is not just one source that you take all your information from. Use many different sources. Do not copy and paste the information that you are using, take the basic idea and then give in your own views and opinions about it.

Check your work

Once you are done with your work read through it to make sure that you have not missed to cite sources anywhere through out your work. If you are using some text word to word make sure you write your sentence as “According to Mr. Lee…”

Use anti plagiarism software

There are soft wares that can catch plagiarism. Use these soft wares to check your work and make sure that you have not committed any sort of unintentional plagiarism. If the soft ware shows that your term paper consists of plagiarism do not panic make changes to the sections that are highlighted by the soft ware. As these soft wares are still new and not very reliable there can be times when they highlight some section of your work to be containing plagiarized material when actually you have cited the sources, in such a case do not worry because your teacher will understand that it is not your mistake but the inefficiency of the soft ware.
