    (i) Plagiarism Checker

      Plagiarism occurs when one uses a chunk of text from published documents that don’t belong to the writer and doesn’t cite or acknowledge the source.

      Self-plagiarism occurs when the writer decides to reuse a piece of text from his own document that he has published previously as it is without rewording or rephrasing the text.

    Writers can use REF-N-WRITE’s similarity checker tool to avoid both plagiarism and self-plagiarism during the writing process rather than after writing.

    The figure below shows a screenshot from the REF-N-WRITE tool illustrating a lot of highlighted text which is a plagiarism risk.

    Now we know that our text has significant overlap with other documents, it is time to address the issue. You must reword and rephrase the text to reduce the overlap. REF-N-WRITE’s scholarly paraphrasing tool and academic phrasebank will help you rewrite your text.

    (iii) Writing Tools

    The REF-N-WRITE team has painstakingly created a phrasebank of 20,000 academic writing phrases for use by students and researchers writing research papers.

    These academic phrases were extracted from high-quality scientific journal articles by a team of academic experts.

    The various categories available within the academic phrasebank is illustrated below in the following figure.

    You can search the academic phrasebank for writing themes and ideas by simply selecting a piece of text in MS Word and then clicking the ‘Writing Ideas’ button.

    The tool will perform an analysis on the selected text and bring up relevant categories from the academic phrasebank

    Ref-N-Write Writing Ideas

    The scholarly paraphrasing tool allows users to search for rephrasing ideas from the phrase library. Since the academic phrases have been extracted from peer-reviewed published scientific papers and journals, the students will get a feel for the sort of language they are required to use in their essays and papers.

    Since the academic phrases are all generic in nature, they can readily use the phrases in their essays and papers without running into plagiarism issues.
