Filtering the Similarity Report

Excluding quotes and bibliography

 

When you choose to exclude quotes, our system will recognize quotes by the use of double quotation marks - "like this" - or paragraph indentations in a Microsoft Word® document. Single quotations - 'like these' - are not recognized as quotes.

 

When you choose to exclude bibliographies, our system will detect the following keywords and disregard matches in the paper after that point:

 

  • References
  • References cited
  • References and notes
  • Resources
  • Bibliography
  • Works cited

 

However, when the paper reaches the following words in the paper, it will resume the similarity check:

 

  • Appendix
  • Appendices
  • Glossary
  • Table
  • Tables
  • Acknowledgment
  • Acknowledgments
  • Exhibits
  • Figure
  • Figures
  • Chart
  • Charts

 

1

To exclude different types of text from the similarity report, click the red Filter icon from the similarity toolbar. If the similarity layer was inactive, it will now be activated, highlighting all on-paper matches.

 

 

2

From the Filters and Settings side panel, use the check boxes to make bibliography and quote exclusions from the similarity report. 

3

Click Apply Changes to confirm this change. This will repaint the similarity report with your change now reflected in the assignment.

Excluding small matches

 

1

To exclude text from the similarity report according to its size, click the red filter icon from the similarity toolbar. If the similarity layer was inactive, it will now be activated, highlighting all on-paper matches.

 

 

2

From the Filters and Settings side panel, use the radio and text boxes to determine which exclusions should apply to the paper's similarity report. You can exclude sources that are less than a certain number of words, or a certain percentage of words. For example, filtering by 10 words will exclude all sources that have a cumulative number of matching words that are less than 10 words in length.

3

Click Apply Changes to confirm this change. This will repaint the similarity report with your change now reflected in the assignment.

Similarity Report multi-color highlighting 

 

1

To apply multi-color highlighting to the similarity report, click the red filter icon from the similarity toolbar. If the similarity layer was inactive, it will now be activated, highlighting all on-paper matches.

2

From the Filters and Settings side panel, use the Multi-Color Highlighting checkbox to toggle highlighting on and off in the similarity report.

3

The paper's similarity matches can now be identified on-paper by color, as well as number.
