How do I use the Plagiarism Check?

You can activate our ProWritingAid Plagiarism Checker via any of the toolbars within our Web Editor, Word add-in, or Google Docs integration. You may need to click the 'More Reports' option in the toolbar.

You will also need to purchase Plagiarism Credits to use our Plagiarism Checker, which you can do here: Or, you can purchase one of our Premium Plus subscriptions on our dedicated Purchase Page.

Each check can be used on a maximum of 2000 words. So, if you have a document that is 8000 words long and want to check the whole document, you'd need to use 4 checks. If you wanted to check a shorter piece of text, say 500 words, that would still use one whole check.

Plagiarism is a major concern for many people, especially those writing academic works. The plagiarism checks performed by ProWritingAid will check your work against over a billion web-pages and articles to make sure that you have correctly cited any unoriginal content. If you run a plagiarism check and nothing is marked, the most likely explanation is that you didn't have any plagiarised content.

You can also track how many plagiarism checks you have left through your ProWritingAid account. You can login to your account via the ProWritingAid website.
