Why is grammar important?

Grammar is important for many reasons:

  • Communication: Communication is about more than simply listening and talking. Written communication is just as important. Think about books, letters, documents, etc. They get their points across by using proper grammar.

  • Clear message: As a writer, you have thoughts and ideas you want to express. However, bad grammar can mean the difference between a clear message and a muddled one. When you check grammar in your writing, your sentences become more precise and clear, which in turn makes for an interesting paper.

  • Credibility: This is relevant no matter if you are in school or the business world. To gain your teacher’s, colleague’s, or customer’s trust, you need to use proper grammar and prove that you can reliably and accurately communicate.

What happens after I upload my paper?

Once you upload a paper, EasyBib Plus scans the text and highlights each grammar issue within your paper, that way you can see it in context. All highlights are shown if you’re a subscriber, otherwise 20 are shown for free. Some will include a detailed explanation as to why the issue was flagged. Others will also have an example of how you can fix the issue. That way, you can make an educated decision about what to do next.

When it comes to making changes, you are always in the driver’s seat. YOU make the final decisions. You can review each highlighted area. You will always be given the choice to either accept or ignore the grammar suggestions.

Whether you are a student or a professional, EasyBib Plus is a powerful tool that can help you improve your paper and establish credibility as a writer. Our checker helps you maintain an ethical writing process.

Check for Unintentional Plagiarism

The ability to check plagiarism is an invaluable tool for students to utilize. So valuable that students are not the only ones using this type of software. Teachers and professors sometimes also use a plagiarism checker free to check and help ensure that your papers are original or have properly sourced citations.

What exactly does a plagiarism checker do?

Maybe you’ve used a free plagiarism checker before, or maybe it was a subscription. Perhaps you’ve never used one before. In any case, EasyBib Plus provides supporting proof that your paper is original and in your own words. Not all professors require evidence that your paper is indeed original. However, some do and if they use a free plagiarism checker, our EasyBib Plus checker will help you to be covered.

EasyBib Plus also provides the number of instances in which your content is similar to others. While some teachers or schools have a percentage rate that is acceptable, others are stricter. Some schools do not tolerate any form of incremental plagiarism, period. In these cases, EasyBib Plus can be your best friend in helping you evaluate your paper before turning it in.

How does it work?

The plagiarism checker searches online for any phrase or sentence that looks similar to passages in your paper. If there are matches, there may be passages that are missing citations.

The checker will tell you how many instances it found and show you exactly which phrases or sentences have been flagged and what online text they may be from.

You have the power to review each area and choose to either cite the flagged text or ignore it. If you choose to cite it, you can review the suggested source and start creating a proper citation right there. You can add the citation both directly into your paper, as an in-text citation, and to your bibliography at the end of the paper.

Reasons your teacher may run your paper through a detector

As stated before, your teachers and professors probably have access to some form of software to check papers and make sure they are original. Most of the time, something will stand out as a red flag that makes the paper questionable. Here are a few things that may trigger a check:

  • Style/Voice: More than likely, your teacher knows the voice you use in your writing. A paper or essay that has a dramatically different style or voice can be a red flag.

  • Inconsistency: Font changes may indicate a copy-and-paste situation. If your paper does not have the correct citations to back up statements and facts, it may be a sign to your teacher that there’s plagiarism in the paper.

  • Old References: Your teacher can pick up on clues that show a paper was recycled and may have been written a while ago. Depending on the topic, some older references are acceptable, but if an essay uses too much outdated information (and without citations), it can be seen as unoriginal work.

Seamless Citation Creation

Citations can be incredibly confusing. Many teachers and professors require them to be in your papers. But have you ever wondered why they are so important? Citations really do have a purpose—other than driving us crazy— that make it necessary to always cite our sources.

We cite our sources for a few important reasons:

We need to give credit where credit is due. When you use a quote from someone else’s work, you need to give credit for using their words and ideas. Research is often based mainly the works and ideas of others—and that’s normal! But if the original work or quote is not referenced, you are essentially plagiarizing. Therefore, giving credit and including citations is the right thing to do.

In addition, showing that you’ve done your proper research and included citations gives you credibility and can help you earn the trust of the reader. Being an ethical writer pays off!

Readers can find the sources you used. Not only can they check the accuracy of your sources, they can use them to further their own research. Sources can take learning to the next level for you, the reader, and your teacher.

Utilizing citations correctly gives strength to your thoughts and opinions. The bottom line is that citations add credibility, enable readers to become authorities on your topic for themselves, and maintain honesty.

With EasyBib Plus’s essay checker, you have the power to:

  • Create unlimited citations in APA format and MLA format

  • Create in-text citations

  • Attach citations directly to your paper

Create accurate citations for multiple styles and source types. It’s so simple and convenient to use. EasyBib Plus ties both grammar and citing together, creating a powerful service for any writer! Try it today!

How We Check for Plagiarism

EasyBib Plus has the tools you need to help you create a high-quality paper. It flags potentially missed citations within your paper and helps you create them.

It is so easy and convenient! Simply upload your paper into EasyBib Plus, select the checker, and sit back and relax as the site reviews your paper. EasyBib Plus will automatically scan your paper and search the web for passages of similar text. Any areas of your paper we find duplicate content for will be highlighted for your attention. It only takes a few minutes!

Sometimes, it is possible to use another person’s work by accident. Perhaps you forgot the citations or simply did not know your content was similar to another. Whatever the reason, we know that not everyone does this on purpose. That’s where a checker can come in handy.

To begin to fully understand the benefits of a plagiarism checker—no matter if it is a subscription-based or free plagiarism checker—you should first answer the question "what is plagiarism?" Let’s explore that thought.

What is Plagiarism?

It’s not hard to come up with a plagiarism definition when you think about it. However, there are various types that may surprise you. Some examples of plagiarism include copying a paper you previously wrote, leaving out citations, and sloppy paraphrasing. For our purposes, let’s focus on its most common form.

To define plagiarism in the most basic sense, we can say that it is taking someone else’s ideas and words and passing them off as your own.

Now, like we stated before, not everyone uses someone else’s words or thoughts on purpose. But there are services like EasyBib Plus that help you to create citations so that you properly source your information. Not only does our service check grammar, it also helps you in avoiding plagiarism .

The bottom line: if you want to use another person’s ideas in your essays and papers, you need to use quotes or write the idea in your own words. Either way, you must cite the original source. The most common styles for doing so are APA format  and MLA format , but check with your instructor to see what style you should use.

If you’re looking for information beyond the plagiarism definition above, see this useful article for more information .

What are the Consequences?

The repercussions of using someone else’s ideas and words are no joke. No matter what setting—academic,  professional, scientific—the act of using someone else’s work as your own is not taken lightly.  And for good reason! Take a look at some of the possible consequences of using someone else’s work as your own:

  • You might get a zero for the assignment.

  • You may get a failing grade for the class.

  • You may be expelled from your school or university.

  • It may be noted on your transcript.

  • There may be legal consequences.

  • You may be fired from your job.

If a writer uses someone else’s content, they should be prepared to suffer the consequences.

What is it in the business or professional world and what does it mean for one’s career? There are still many repercussions beyond school. Professionals suffer when they are accused of copying another’s work.  People who are copywriters, professors, and scientists can lose their jobs and their reputations for copying the work  of others without giving credit—the very definition of plagiarism.

Who wants to be known as someone who cannot come up with their own ideas? Hopefully not you!

You Hurt Yourself When You Plagiarize

Some may think that they are getting ahead when they use someone else’s work and pass it off as their own. The reality is that they are hurting themselves in the long run.

You may ask why. Well, for one, these people fail to learn how to properly research and write, skills which are highly valued in any profession. Using someone else’s work only means they are not learning properly.  And learning is what life is all about, right?

Secondly, there is integrity attached to the academic world and ethical writing.  When they are dishonest and breach this integrity, they are essentially compromising their reputation and credibility.

Do Not Plagiarize

What’s Wrong with Plagiarizing?

Most of us feel that plagiarism is morally wrong and need no other deterrent than this. However, even for those who do not feel an ethical compulsion to avoid it,
the consequences of plagiarism can be quite severe for those who take the risk. For students, getting caught may mean a failing grade,
suspension, or even expulsion, and for professionals the stakes are even higher as one’s reputation may not be so quickly mended.

Is This Really Free?

While other sites may charge to check plagiarism, it has always been part of our mission to offer services that are accessible to everyone, regardless of income. For users that demand greater speed and accuracy, we do offer a premium service that allows longer submissions as well. Nevertheless, 99.9% of our users are content with our free plagiarism test.
