Plagiarism detection software helps verify originality of content submitted for publication and identify cases of possible misconduct

Bingley, United Kingdom, 09 November 2015 – Emerald Group Publishing - a global publisher linking research and practice to the benefit of society - has implemented CrossCheck plagiarism detection software to help verify the originality of content submitted for publication and identify cases of possible misconduct.

CrossCheck - powered by iThenticate - uses originality detection software to compare manuscripts against a unique database holding in excess of 30 million articles from more than 200 publishers worldwide.

CrossCheck is an initiative between iThenticate and CrossRef - a not-for-profit membership association of publishers - established to help publishers prevent professional plagiarism and other forms of scholarly misconduct.

“All of Emerald’s Content Editors will have access to CrossCheck, helping further enhance quality assurance and the standard of published work.”
