Understanding the Plagiarism report for reducing the similarity index

Plagiarism Removal provides its customers the means to submit Word documents (*.DOC, *DOCX, and *.RTF) and check its similarity index. The similarity index is the percentage of the document content that contains plagiarized (or copied) material. For example, if the similarity index is 50%, it means that 50% of the word count in the submitted document has been plagiarized. A similarity index of 15% (or less) is good, as every research document uses industry-specific terms and jargons that cannot be replaced.

Customers can specify their personal details and word count in the following fields, before requesting for a plagiarism check.

Plagiarism percentage Percentage of content to be rewritten
Less than 35% 50% of the content
35 to 60% 75% of the content
More than 60% Entire document to be rewritten


Example, if the attached thesis contains 30,000 words and has a plagiarism percentage of 35%, 50% of the document (or 15000 words) will be replaced or rewritten, to reduce the similarity index to 15% or less.
