How do you check for plagiarism in ebook?

8 replies
Are there any resources available to check duplicate content and plagiarism for content in ebooks? For example if you have a 90 page ebook, do you copy and paste each page of content into the service to check for plagiarism/duplicate content?

Please advise.

      Another quick check is to take snippets and simply Google them in quotes. Choose several sentences or phrases you don't think are likely to appear. If they do, it means you need to look more closely.

      It's certainly not definitive, but it can catch some of the more flagrant violations.

  • The EASY way to check your ebooks for Plagiarism.
    If you have a blog there this is the easy way.
    1. Just place the ebook into a new page with the title and PUBLISH IT.
    2. then go to copyscape's main page enter in the full URL with page permalink.
    delete the page when finished.
