You can jump chronologically from one match to the next by using the arrow keys on your keyboard. This way, you can navigate through the report effectively.
Origin of Sources
You can find the following symbols on top of your source list. Those symbols help you to organize sources according to their origin.
We provide you with some different views of the plagiarism report:
All Sources: Shows matches from all source.
Top three: Shows only the sources with the most matches.
Internet Sources: Shows matches from all online sources.
Organization Archive: Shows all matches within your organization.*
Own documents: Shows matches within your own documents.
Plagiarism Prevention Pool: Shows matches within the Plagiarism Prevention Pool.
*You have to activate this option beforehand (see How to customize Settings for the Plagiarism Check under Data policy)
The sign indicates that PlagScan has found clones of a source (with the exact same match). PlagScan groups those clones and hides them initially.
