Plagiarism Prevention Program

How does the program work?

The Plagiarism Prevention Program uses SafeAssign, a program available through Blackboard, to review your draft papers for plagiarism issues. SafeAssign compares your paper to existing sources, such as the internet and databases, and identifies and highlights possible plagiarism in your submitted assignment. 

If you are interested in having your paper checked in SafeAssign, you can begin by filling out an online request form. Within 48 hours, one of the Stark Campus librarians will contact you in order to obtain the assignment. The librarian will then submit the draft to SafeAssign. If the report is clean (no issues of plagiarism), the report will be sent to you. Otherwise, we will contact you to set up an appointment to discuss the findings.
