We present an evaluation framework for plagiarism detection.1 The framework provides performance measures that address the specifics of plagiarism detection, and the PAN-PC-10 corpus, which contains 64 558 artificial and 4 000 simulated plagiarism cases, the latter generated via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. We discuss the construction principles behind the(More)
The 1st International Competition on Plagiarism Detection, held in conjunction with the 3rd PAN workshop on Uncovering Plagiarism, Authorship, and Social Software Misuse, brought together researchers from many disciplines around the exciting retrieval task of automatic plagiarism detection. The competition was divided into the subtasks external plagiarism(More)
This paper overviews 15 plagiarism detectors that have been evaluated within the fourth international competition on plagiarism detection at PAN’12. We report on their performances for two sub-tasks of external plagiarism detection: candidate document retrieval and detailed document comparison. Furthermore, we introduce the PAN plagiarism corpus 2012, the(More)
This paper overviews eleven plagiarism detectors that have been developed and evaluated within PAN’11. We survey the detection approaches developed for the two sub-tasks “external plagiarism detection” and “intrinsic plagiarism detection,” and we report on their detailed evaluation based on the third revised edition of the PAN plagiarism corpus PAN-PC-11.
This paper overviews 18 plagiarism detectors that have been developed and evaluated within PAN’10. We start with a unified retrieval process that summarizes the best practices employed this year. Then, the detectors’ performances are evaluated in detail, highlighting several important aspects of plagiarism detection, such as obfuscation, intrinsic vs.(More)
Cross-language plagiarism detection deals with the automatic identification and extraction of plagiarism in a multilingual setting. In this setting, a suspicious document is given, and the task is to retrieve all sections from the document that originate from a large, multilingual document collection. Our contributions in this field are as follows: (i) a(More)
The author identification task at PAN-2014 focuses on author verification. Similar to PAN-2013 we are given a set of documents by the same author along with exactly one document of questioned authorship, and the task is to determine whether the known and the questioned documents are by the same author or not. In comparison to PAN-2013, a significantly(More)
Internet has made available huge amounts of information, also source code. Source code repositories and, in general, programming related websites, facilitate its reuse. In this work, we propose a simple approach to the detection of cross-language source code reuse, a nearly investigated problem. Our preliminary experiments, based on character n-grams(More)
This paper describes QCRI’s participation in SemEval-2015 Task 3 “Answer Selection in Community Question Answering”, which targeted real-life Web forums, and was offered in both Arabic and English. We apply a supervised machine learning approach considering a manifold of features including among others word n-grams, text similarity, sentiment analysis, the(More)
