Re: [visionlist] Plagiarism checks in Empirical ManuscriptsPosted: July 10, 2017
I had a funny experience being flagged for possible plagiarism.
The journal’s very thorough plagiarism detector reported that a high proportion of my submission was duplicated from a document that it found on the web.
No surprise, though. Turns out the duplicated article was an early draft of the submitted article that I had posted on my website. And the editor immediately understood what had happened. No harm done.
