Guidelines for Submission of Thesis/ Dissertation for Plagiarism Report
Any VKSU student, researcher or department can seek plagiarism report for a document under their ownership/responsibility. One has to make the corresponding payment and have the payment receipt ready before you submit the request.
The concerned document needs to be submitted at the bottom of this page https://vksu.ac.in/computer-center/plagiarism-report/. The form has some questions relevant to the work for which plagiarism report is being sought, please fill them correctly.
If for some reason you are unable to submit your request online, you may choose one of the following:
- A thesis/ dissertation should be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) as well as an editable text format (such as DOC/DOCX/ODT/TXT/LATEX) in the appropriate section of our website (https://vksu.ac.in/computer-center/plagiarism-report/).
- The preferred font of theses in English text shall be ‘Times New Roman’ or ‘Arial’ of font-size 12 pt. For theses in Hindi text (written in Devanagari Script) the preferred font is ‘Krutidev 010’ or ‘Mangal’. In the case of subjects connected with any of the oriental languages the font may be different but comparable.
- No part of the thesis should have text disguised as an image. Figure captions should be explicitly written in text.
- Along with the thesis, the candidate needs to upload the proof of payment and a scanned copy of duly filled self-declaration (Annexure – I)
- If due to connectivity issues, you are unable to fill the form on website, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to generate a plagiarism report. In this request you have to attach your document as a single file. We need both a PDF copy and an editable text format (in .txt, .doc, .docx, .odt or LaTeX file) of that document. Your email request should be accompanied with all relevant details about the scholar/ researcher (mentioned below).
- If you are not comfortable with the online tools at all, currently we allow students to physically visit the Computer Center (CC), Science Block, VKSU and give their thesis in pen-drive/ CD along with other relevant information.
Report Generation and sharing:
A one-page report shall be generated stating the name of the researcher, the percentage of plagiarism detected, the authorizing signature and any remark from the CC. One copy of this report is sent to Controller of Examination and two copies to the department, one each for the Head and Supervisor. The research supervisor may share his/ her copy with the concerned student.
In case plagiarism is detected above the allowed level (20%), a detailed report can be asked by the concerned DAIC chairman to discuss in DAIC meeting and access the level and intent behind the plagiarized content and duly assign a penalty for the same. The DAIC shall forward this detailed report along with its recommendations to the UAIC.
Once the detailed report showing details of the plagiarized content is shared, the case has to be finally approved by the UAIC before the thesis/ dissertation can be resubmitted.
