We are using PlagScan sporadically to check seminar works, bachelor's and master's theses, mostly when we have grounds for suspicion. After extensively testing other software provide we came to the conclusion that PlagScan was the most convincing. The courteous service is unparalleled and we would like to recommend this piece of software at this point. Working with the service is easy and intuitive after a short introduction.
We use PlagScan for all our exams and internship reports. The students are informed beforehand of the plagiarism check and the work is submitted electronically. In the future, we will embed PlagScan into Moodle. The comparison and report presentation is amazing. The comparison of papers facilitates our work and is an added benefit. It is sad that indeed we do find some plagiarized papers, but on the other hand, that is exactly what we are trying find.
PlagScan is easy and uncomplicated to use. Also users new to the system quickly understand how to make use of it due to its intuitive web interface.

10% of about 100-120 theses are checked preventively and on top that we have checks by suspicion. For our needs this tool is absolutely ideal and very user-friendly. As a small institute within the police, our students are all dealing with the same topics and know each other well. Being able to upload and compare documents with each other online is the key feature.
We check documents that are being submitted as assignments or research with PlagScan. PlagScan is very accurate and even finds matches in our own documents. What has convinced us most of all to use PlagScan in the years to come has been the immediate and helpful replies and attentiveness to our inquiries and needs.
