Interpretation of the result remains at the user's discretion. Compilatio provides you an overall similarity result, which should often be refined by ignoring sources and/or documents.
The detected sources may come from several channels, depending on the type of Compilatio account that you own (Magister / Studium or Copyright):
- from our own database
- from documents that are freely accessible on the Internet
- potentially, from certain institutional databases or certain online documentary databases.
Through in-depth study of the "similar" passages detected by Compilatio in a text, the user can assess whether the document has been plagiarised or not.
