    I was wondering if there is any application for Mac OS X that will check text for plagiarism. Im currently in college and I have like 5 essays to write for different classes and I would like to scan these papers before I turn them in. I want to be a 100% sure there is not plagiarism at all. I know this can be avoided but not copying anything exactly is it is online or in books but sometimes even if it not copied exactly the same it can be considered plagiarism. I want to make sure this does not happen, I don't want a bad grade! :)

    Maybe i am missing something, but if you turn in your own work, won't that prevent any possible plagiarism issue?

    This makes no sense. If you do your own work on a research paper you are at higher risk of plagiarism? What?

    In any case, a simple Google search would have yielded several potentially helpful sites you could try.

    As long as you properly acknowledge any sources you will be okay.
