Urkund can be used to provide support to students as they hone their academic writing skills, and to detect plagiarism. Urkund can be linked to many functions in Moodle, and it can also be easily used by e-mail. Urkund has also been integrated to E-thesis.
A document submitted to Urkund is compared with texts in the open internet, publication databases and other documents saved in the Urkund database. A comparison report is generated, showing how much similarity the submitted document share with the other documents.
All master’s theses completed at the University of Helsinki must be checked with Urkund before approval. Urkund can also be used in other, smaller writing tasks for practising academic writing.
