PlagScan allows you to create multiple organizational users at the same time. If you have a user table in digital form, you can upload it via a table file (.csv, .xls, .xlsx, .ods from MS Excel or another spreadsheet program).
Absolutely. PlagScan provides an Application Programming Interface (API), which allows you to integrate PlagScan's functionality into your existing system. For example: After the student submits a document, the analysis automatically occurs in the background. When the teacher accesses the paper for grading, the annotated version would already be there. This way, possible plagiarism can be considered during the teacher's normal grading routine and no extra work is necessary. Please have a look at our PlagScan API documentation.
Yes. If you would like to check documents that require an NDA, need to be kept confidential or you want to keep secret for another reason, we provide organizations with the option to mark documents as private (via the padlock button in your document manager). Private documents can be checked but will not be checked against. The document can not be put into the organization’s repository and will not be part of the PlagScan Plagiarism Prevention Pool. After you checked your document you can delete it. It will be gone forever and not remain on our servers.
Documents of single users are likewise private by default, with the difference that they always can be checked against within this one account.
Among other functionalities, the submission manager can set deadlines, create notifications and restrict report sharing with the person, who submitted the work. Therefore, we recommend getting in touch with the submission manager to find out whether a setting was enabled with the submission that left you with no feedback.
The customized PlagScan portal is the individual access portal for your organization. All organization users log into this page and can see the administrator's notifications. Also, third party users like students and authors upload their documents to the account through the portal by using codes generated by the organization users (for a more detailed explanation click here). Third party users may also precheck their documents if granted by the organization.
Yes. If your institution has an archive of digital documents available which you want to import into your PlagScan repository in a quick and easy manner, we can provide you with a script for automated batch document upload. Please contact your account manager or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
