After 10 years hosted on my office computer, the Plagiarism Resource Site now has a new home and new look. It has moved to BloomfieldMedia.com, where it is now build with WordPress. The days of hand-coded web sites are clearly over and I’m happy to let such a sophisticated software package handle the presentation of content. I’ve given up a tiny amount of flexibility in exchange for amazing features and ease of use.
The key components of this web site are all still here:
- WCopyfind — a program to find duplications of language between documents
- My thoughts on issues relating to plagiarism, scholarship, and society
As part of this update, I have largely rewritten WCopyfind (3.0) so that it handles two important modern document formats: .docx and .pdf. It also handles .html and .txt files better than it did before. And it still handles .doc files imperfectly and it will do what it can to find text in just about any file you feed it.
All the best,
