The System will inform the user of the total amount of tokens that is needed to check a document during the process of submitting that document for analysis. When the text of the document is uploaded to the content box, either from a file or using the copy/paste method, the System calculates the number of characters and the number of tokens needed. This information is displayed in the field below the content box. To check a document in the Strikeplagiarism.com System you need to purchase the amount of tokens that corresponds with the length of your document. One token allows a user to check a document that is no larger than 20,000 characters. For every further 20,000 characters the user must purchase a new token. To make your payment go to the “Payments” console.
Important! The System calculates all the characters that appear in the document code when calculating the characters. This includes not only letters, digits, punctuation marks and spaces calculated by word processors such as MS WORD, but also paragraph breaks that are mostly ignored by word processors statistics.
The cost of document analysis for users of subscription accounts is generally covered by the client institution. Costs are negotiated separately with each client according their tailored needs. The subscription license is generally determined based on the number and volume of submitted documents per annum.
Individual accounts allow individual users (not assigned to any client university) to verify documents by purchasing tokens. One token allows a user to check a document that is no larger than 20,000 characters. For every further 20,000 characters the user must purchase a new token. The maximum size of a document that can be analysed at a time is 500,000 characters. To purchase a token go to the “Payments” console. The transaction can be completed in three ways: by bank transfer, by credit card or via SMS (the last is available only through Polish mobile phone operators).
The cost of one token purchased via bank transfer or credit card is 2.46 EUR (gross).
The cost of a token purchased via SMS code is: 11,07 zł gross. (This amount is given in the polish currency as it is only available through a Polish mobile operator)
The difference of cost is due to the margins set by the providers of these services.
The system stops analysing the document after detecting pages consisting in 50% of copied sources i.e. after reaching 50% Similarity Rate. The system task is detecting whether in a given document there are any fragments of questionable originality. The authors of the system have specified that 50% Similarity Coefficient provides sufficient information on the level of alleged borrowings.
