iThenticate Introduces New Plagiarism Detection Service for Individual Authors and Researchers

Individual authors can now access the same plagiarism prevention service used by leading scientific, medical and technical organizations.

OAKLAND, Calif. – January 18, 2011 – iParadigms, the leader in plagiarism prevention software, today announced a new service that provides individual authors, researchers and freelance writers access to the company’s award-winning iThenticate solution. The new service, available today at, allows individuals to cross-reference their manuscripts against a massive database of scholarly material in the scientific, technical and medical (STM) fields with the goal of vetting their material, ensuring that any non-original content is accurately and comprehensively cited before submission.

Leading publishers in the scientific, technical and medical fields rely on iThenticate for professional plagiarism prevention. Now individual authors and researchers can use the same service to detect matched content in their manuscripts prior to publication. Detecting an unattributed source prior to submission can be instrumental to a manuscript’s approval within a number of governing bodies, including peer reviewed journals, academic departments, research groups, conference proceedings or granting agencies.

“Global publishers and prominent granting bodies use iThenticate in their editorial processes,” said Bob Creutz, general manager of iThenticate. “It was a natural progression to provide authors and researchers the capability to use the same technology for editorial due diligence at the individual level.”

Trusted by Leaders

iThenticate serves leading international publishers and granting agencies. Publishing customers include Elsevier, IEEE, WIley-Blackwell, Nature, Taylor & Francis, Harper Collins and Random House. Government granting agencies, including the National Science Foundation, The U.S. Department of Energy, and the Swiss National Science Foundation, use iThenticate to check grant proposals and manuscripts for originality.

Easy-to-Use Technology

iThenticate is easy-to-use for individual authors and researchers. Using the web-based interface, a user submits a document for comparison to iThenticate’s extensive data repository. Within seconds, iThenticate produces a report that highlights content matches and provides links to significant text found within iThenticate’s databases.
