Software Finds Plagiarism In Research
shmG writes “Researchers from the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute have created a seek-and-destroy program — for plagiarism. Called ET Blast, it’s designed to find plagiarism in scientific papers, It does a full-text analysis, and then looks for similar publications in several databases. “We have better literature,” Garner said. “There are abstracts and full papers, and a database called Crisp, where you compare stuff to every grant the NIH gets. It’s compared to any research that’s been funded.”"
