What is Turnitin?
Turnitin is an online plagiarism checker that was founded in the year 1997.
The universities and colleges often buys the licences for this software to check and detect the level of plagiarism in student papers.
Currently, Turnitin is being used by more than 30 million students and close to 200,000 universities around the world.
It is the most popular and the most trusted plagiarism checker online.
How does Turnitin Works?
Turnitin works by comparing the submitted paper to the online content and other several databases using a proprietary algorithm. It does this by scanning its own Turnitin database together with other academic databases.
It then produces a similarity score that rangers from 0-100%, with zero representing no plagiarism and 100% represented full plagiarism.
There are several other options for checking plagiarism. Some people believe in them while others don’t believe in them.
To be precise, there are over 50 plagiarism checking tools online. However, majority of them can never be relied upon when it comes to checking plagiarism.
Among the most common options for checking plagiarism are Copyscape and Grammarly. Therefore, we will compare these three most commonly used software to check for plagiarism.
Copyscape is a plagiarism checking software that was founded in the year 2004. It basically checks your work against similarity with other document on the web (see evidence below).
What does this (web) mean?
It simply means that copyscape compares your document to the content on the world wide web. In other words, it had no database.
Actually, copyscape is most commonly used by bloggers, content creators, and SEO experts (not academicians). Why? Because these group of people are not interested in any database, they are only interested on online content.
Why? Because it cannot detect similarity with content on a database. This is good for SEO and bloggers, but bad news for students.
CopyScape Vs Turnitin Compared
|Checks similarity against the web content and a database||Checks similarity against the web content only|
|Has no word limit during check||There is a word limit during check|
|Does not check grammar||Does not check grammar|
EXPERT TAKE: Turnitin is more superior to CopyScape
Why? Due to their additional functionality to check the web plus a database.
Grammarly is also another commonly used software by many people to check for grammar and plagiarism at the same time.
As you can see from their home page, Grammarly has invested heavily in checking grammar mistakes.
As their name suggest, Grammarly is more of a grammar checker than a plagiarism checker.
In fact, they only check plagiarism as a secondary option, not a primary option.
Turnitin Vs Grammarly Compared
|Primarily a plagiarism checker||Primarily a grammar checker|
|Compares a document against web content and databases||Compares a document against web content only|
|Checks plagiarism only||Checks grammar and plagiarism as an additional feature|
EXPERT TAKE: Turnitin is still better than Grammarly when it comes to plagiarism checking
Why? Because they only focus on one thing (Plagiarism) without the need to be distracted by other things.
However, if you are more interested in grammatical mistakes than plagiarism, then you better go for Grammarly.
