- Published: 2021/03/18
If you have ever submitted a manuscript to an academic journal for publication, there is a chance your submission was screened for possible plagiarism. Many academic journals use a screening service, such as Similarity Check, powered by iThenticate, to detect the amount of similar text between submitted manuscripts and published articles. One question that many authors have is how much similarity is too much. Another is whether there is a cut-off level of similarity that authors should strive to be under.
