Comprehensive plagiarism check
Scanning through the latest online sources and scientific databases in real time

Compared to scans of web archives, real time web searches give the most complete and up-to-date picture of the sources used in the paper. Firstly, the scan covers all individual pages, not just parts that were archived some time ago. Secondly, every detected similarity includes an actual clickable link for an in-depth investigation—no broken or outdated pages like with the web archive.
Only relevant check results
Unicheck scans online in real time through more than 40 billion unique web sources, academic journals, and repositories, providing only relevant check results. Every link in the similarity report contains alive sources that contain claimed similarities.
Unicheck performs simultaneous real-time checking of multiple submissions. With this, educators can effortlessly assess large amounts of student works during busy times or whenever.
Check against the library
This extra-useful feature allows instructors and account managers to run checks against the entire institution’s library. This check includes all files uploaded by the account manager, instructors, and students. Thanks to this, you will be able to identify any cases of self-plagiarism among students or if they’re sharing papers with pals.
Identifying citations and reference
Unicheck automatically spots citations and references in the most commonly used formats: APA, MLA, Harvard, and Chicago/Turabian. They are all highlighted in the report and can be omitted from the overall plagiarism rate. When excluded, similarity percentage is recalculated at once, so that you can receive a more precise figure.
Comprehensive anti-cheating functionality
To successfully pass a plagiarism check, students may resort to different techniques, like replacing characters, inserting non-visible signs, etc. Unicheck spots these tricks and displays a warning about whether possible cheating occurred in a paper.
