CrossCheck Similarity Check
CrossCheck Similarity Check is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality. Edorium Journals uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Wherever you see the “CrossCheck Deposited” or “CrossCheck Depositor” logos, you can be reassured that the publisher whose content you are reading is committed to actively combating plagiarism and publishing original research. View Edorium Journals’ plagiarism policy here. To find out more about CrossCheck visit http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck.html
iThenticate is also available to authors and researchers who wish to check their papers before submission. iThenticate compares submitted documents to extensive data repositories to create a comprehensive Similarity Report, which highlights and provides links to any significant text matches, helping to ensure that you are submitting an original and well-attributed document. iThenticate for Researchers is a separate service to CrossCheck.
CrossRef is an association of scholarly publishers that develops shared infrastructure to support more effective scholarly communications. CrossRef is a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital switchboard. It holds no full text content, but rather effects linkages through CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (CrossRef DOI), which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers. The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article. (Text from CrosRef website.)
