Plagiarism removal techniques


A Ph.D. student asked me about the ways she can change each words in her manuscript for the purpose of plagiarism removal.



Actually, replacing the words in a text will not guarantee the plagiarism removal. The best techniques for plagiarism removal are “Paraphrasing” and “Summarizing”. Some good ideas are presented as follows:

  1. Write each paragraph with your own words. Do not re-write each sentence separately.
  2. Summarize the text.
  3. Do the appropriate citations in the text, and add the references in the reference list.
  4. If you have to copy and paste a specific sentence, then write it within “ ”.
  5. Use the student version of Turnitin, i. e. WriteCheck (http://www.writecheck.com), at a very cheap and reasonable price.

I am a non-English author; so I always send my articles to a Native English editor from United States and he really re-writes tens of the sentences in my articles and provides tens of constructive comments on my writing. If you like I can suggest you the editor, who I believe, is among the best English editors in the world.
