[prMac.com] Rolling Meadows, Illinois - Terra Novus Labs is pleased to announce a back to school sale for their plagiarism checking tool, Novus Scan. From now through September 14, Novus Scan will be on sale for $9.99 USD.
As a plagiarism checker, Novus Scan is a great addition to a teacher's toolkit, enabling them to compare student's homework or term papers. It also helps writers and editors compare versions of articles and manuscripts, highlighting similarities between them.
Novus Scan works completely offline. Users create a database of documents and then scan the database using a document the they'd like to check for copied text. Novus Scan compares the text to its document database using a two-step scanning algorithm that first finds candidate documents, and then compares them word-by-word to the text that they're scanning.
Novus Scan detects exact phrases at least 8 words long and inexact phrases longer than 8 words. The search results are shown in an intuitive user interface that displays the user's document and the matching documents in the same window. Users can also create reports that can be printed or saved in PDF format.
Since it works offline, users can be sure that their documents won't be uploaded to the internet and they won't violate intellectual property rights of the document's owner. Users maintain their own database of documents, whether it's their own previously written work, reference materials used in research, or term papers from classes that they are teaching.
