Viewing similarity matches

Table of contents


The Match Overview gives you a breakdown of all the matches that have been found in the paper and allows you to clearly view the similarity score. Matches are ordered by the highest instance of similarity down to the lowest. Each match has a color and a number attached to it. These color tags will help you to find the match on the paper itself.



To view the Match Overview, click on the red numerical similarity score from the product toolbar.




The Match Overview will be displayed within the Match Overview side panel.




Having clicked the Match Overview icon, this will also highlight any matches within the paper itself. Each match can be color-coded to help you identify them easily.




By clicking on one of the sources from the Match Overview side panel, you can discover how many matches have been found for each source. Click the navigation arrows to jump from one match to the next; this will move you through the paper itself.


Should you wish to see a match breakdown for each source, click the arrow to the right of the source.


You can now see a large list of all the matches concerning this particular source. Click any of these matches to be directed to it on your paper.



Viewing source details



If you would like to see more information regarding the text that has matched to a source, click on the source number from within the paper.




A pop-up box will appear; this will show you further details relating to the source that your writing has been matched with.


Should you wish to view the source in more depth, click on the Full Source View icon in the top right-hand corner of the pop-up.





The right-hand side panel will change to Full Source Text, which you can scroll through to read in detail.


If the match is found to be from another student’s paper, rather than an external source, this will be unavailable for viewing.


Click the 'X' icon in the top right-hand corner of the side panel to return to the Match Overview.
