URKUND is a tool for similarity (Plagiarism) checking. It is an internet-based tool which detects similarity of the content matches with the different documents in your writing.
Step by Step Procedure and Few points of consideration before uploading documents to URKUND
The platform is preferably used for checking of Theses, Capstone Projects and Research Articles only. Do not use it to check the daily assignment through the plagiarism software Urkund.
Login using at http://urkund.com using WebAPP
Upload using Button “Upload Document” available at Top Right Corner
Enter your analysis address
Submit the document only when you have finished it as a FINAL DRAFT. Do not submit documents in bits and pieces. Prefer to submit documents for a maximum of two times, one is Final draft and other is the Final Copy after correction of the similarity report received after first checking the Final draft.
In Subject Line provide title of the report/thesis/article
Rename file title with the title of the report/thesis/article
Do not submit same document multiple times, else it will show 100% similarity. If it is shows 100% similarity of previous document, change the setting, and un-check the radio button “Search in Urkund Archive”.
An email will be received with the report may be after some time to 24 hours. Download and analyses report and remove similarity in discussion with your mentor/supervisor/faculty
You may be allocated limited quota for checking your project report keeping in view of the large number of users in campus.
We have noticed that the complete paper has been copied from an already published article and uploaded to the URKUND for similarity checking. Once it is completely copied it will certainly have 100 percent similarity.
Submitting the same document again and again will hamper the counting of the license allotted to us. If we notice that the same document has been checked more than two times, your account will be deactivated.
Be sure that you are checking a very genuine content. You are well aware that how much content you are copying other sources, and if you had copied a chunk of the content from Internet, article, books etc, there is no use of the using similarity checking
Please keep in your mind that the resources are meant for fair use. Misuse by any user of the TIET will hamper the availability of the resources to other potential users
