iParadigms. CrossRef announces CrossCheck plagiarism detection service. CrossRef announces an agreement with iParadigms launch the CrossCheck service to aid in verifying the originality of scholarly content. Following on the success of CrossRef’s recent pilot of CrossCheck, the service is scheduled to go live in June. CrossRef is partnering with iParadigms to offer its members — leading scholarly and professional publishers — the opportunity to verify the originality of works submitted for publication using the iThenticate service to check against a vast database of proprietary as well as open web content. Until now, there was no automated way to check submissions against previous publications because the published literature had not been indexed and “text fingerprinted” for this purpose. The CrossCheck database will include the full-text journals of leading academic publishers, and is expected to grow very rapidly over the coming months as CrossRef member publishers sign up for the service.
