Plagiarism Check

Preprints submitted to the GitData Archive undergo a similarity check against our existing published preprints. Upon submission of a new preprint, the system automatically compares the abstract of the user's paper with the abstracts of all preprints already published on GitData Archive's server. If the similarity exceeds 65% with any other preprint, the user will be unable to submit the paper. It is important to note that while we strive for originality, we cannot guarantee 100% uniqueness for all preprints.
