AbstractWhen a shift in writing style is noticed in a document, doubts arise about its originality. Based on this clue to plagiarism, the intrinsic approach to plagiarism detection identifies the stolen passages by analysing the writing style of the suspicious document without comparing it to textual resources that may serve as sources for the plagiarist. Character n-grams are recognised as a successful approach to modelling text for writing style analysis. Although prior studies have… Expand
Intrinsic Plagiarism Detection System Using Stylometric Features and DBSCAN

Text mining applied to plagiarism detection: The use of words for detecting deviations in the writing style
Text mining is done, exploring the use of words as a linguistic feature for analyzing a document by modeling the writing style present in it, and it is demonstrated that this feature shows promise in this area, achieving reasonable results compared to benchmark models. Expand
Intrinsic Plagiarism Detection Using Character n-gram Profiles
A new method is presented that attempts to quantify the style variation within a document using character n-gram profiles and a style change function based on an appropriate dissimilarity measure originally proposed for author identification. Expand
On the Robustness of Authorship Attribution Based on Character N -gram Features
Comparative results with another competitive text representation approach based on very frequent words show that character n-grams are better able to capture stylistic properties of text when there are significant differences among the training and test corpora. Expand
Intrinsic plagiarism analysis
The question whether plagiarism can be detected by a computer program if no reference can be provided, e.g., if the foreign sections stem from a book that is not available in digital form is investigated. Expand
