Re: [visionlist] Plagiarism checks in Empirical Manuscripts

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.
