Once your analysis is complete, a percentage results gauge is displayed to the right of your analysed document.
This percentage represents a similarity rate for text found in your document that is identical to text in an external source. For example, this percentage includes citations that are potentially already referenced in the document. Therefore, it is not a rate of plagiarism. It is the user's responsibility to read the analysis report to find out where these similarities come from and to assess whether or not it is plagiarism.
Depending on the result obtained, this gauge is displayed with the following default colour code:
- Green: between 0 and 10% of detected similarities
- Orange: between 10 and 25% of detected similarities
- Red: more than 25% of detected similarities
As part of using Magister, these thresholds can be changed in your folders' settings.
