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)
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)
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)
Automatic plagiarism detection considering a reference corpus compares a suspicious text to a set of original documents in order to relate the plagiarised fragments to their potential source. Publications on this task often assume that the search space (the set of reference documents) is a narrow set where any search strategy will produce a good output in a(More)
This paper describes the UPC submissions to the WMT14 Metrics Shared Task: UPC-IPA and UPC-STOUT. These metrics use a collection of evaluation measures integrated in ASIYA, a toolkit for machine translation evaluation. In addition to some standard metrics, the two submissions take advantage of novel metrics that consider linguistic structures, lexical(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)
When automatic plagiarism detection is carried out considering a reference corpus, a suspicious text is compared to a set of original documents in order to relate the plagiarised text fragments to their potential source. One of the biggest difficulties in this task is to locate plagiarised fragments that have been modified (by rewording, insertion or(More)
The automatic detection of plagiarism is a task that has acquired relevance in the Information Retrieval area and it becomes more complex when the plagiarism is made in a multilingual panorama, where the original and suspicious texts are written in different languages. From a cross-lingual perspective, a text fragment in one language is considered a(More)
