Generating a new Similarity Report

If you believe something may have been added to our database since a paper's last similarity report was generated (a website, journal article, or even another student’s paper), you can generate a new similarity report from the Filters and Settings panel.

  1. To generate a new similarity report, click the red filter icon from the similarity toolbar. If the similarity layer was inactive, it will now be activated, highlighting all on-paper matches.

  2. From the Filters and Settings side panel, click the New Report button to generate a new report.
  3. We encourage you to only generate a new report if you have reason to believe that something new has been added to the database, as your previous similarity report will be overwritten. Click OK to generate a new report, or Cancel to abort.
