Does this detect all plagiarized text from all sources?

The accuracy of the plagiarism checker is highest when used with academic texts. These types of texts are the most common types of electronic texts to be correctly archived and cited online, allowing the plagiarism checker to work correctly.

If the plagiarism checker has not underlined a portion of your text as plagiarized, this does not necessarily mean it is not plagiarized. Ultimately, you are responsible for understanding the definition of plagiarism and avoiding it in your own writing.

What do I do if the Plagiarism Checker is not loading?
