So who has anything to say about this comparison? Both are online tools that offer plagiarism detection but which one is better?
I find that copywriters or article writers in general, and people who are hiring them, love to use copyscape as the default benchmark to determine whether the articles produced are original and not copied.
I personally find that TurnItIn has a much more professional interface whereas CopyScape looks like it’s mererly retuning queries from search engines. What I mean is you can still just copy some text from your article and paste it into Google to see if there are any match, which is what I feel CopyScape is doing. Prove me wrong otherwise. Of course, TurnItIn attracts a higher pricetag and is generally being used in academics as far as I know while CopyScape provides a free service and a premium subscription service as well.
Do you have experience in using either/both/similar tools? Please share your comments in combating plagiarism online.
