Since many years, PlagScan has supported the international quest for fair and equal education standards by detecting plagiarism in academic work. With the growing availability of paper mills and affordable ghostwriting services, PlagScan also widened their approach to safeguard academic integrity by detecting commissioned documents. The implementation of latest technologies from Computational Linguistics into the PlagScan solution, now gives to professors and instructors the foundation for further investigation on documents which they might have a gut feeling about. Markus Goldbach, PlagScan’s CEO will describe such approach on June 21th, at 10:30am in detail. We’re looking forward to discussing the communities’ experiences and ideas on protecting academic integrity.
PlagScan sees itself as safeguard of Academic Integrity. We are looking forward to interesting discussions on how you and PlagScan can work together in promoting creative thinking and original writing at your organisation. You will have a tour of Author Metrics, our new addition in our portfolio.
