URKUND – the solution to plagiarism problems

URKUND offers a fully-automated system for handling plagiarism. In short, the students send their documents to their teachers by e-mail. Along the electronic route between student and teacher, the documents are checked against three central source areas: Internet, published material and student material. If any document displays similarities with the content in the three sources, the system will flag it for possible plagiarism. An analysis overview is generated and sent by e-mail to the teacher concerned. The analysis overview presents in a simplified form the information needed by the teacher in order to determine if plagiarism has occurred.

The Journal of the Burma Research Society was the first academic journal devoted to Burma Studies. The journal started in 1911 about the same time as The Journal of the Siam Society. It was published in Burma but is no longer published today.

JBRS had 59 volumes spanning a period of 70 years, with a total of 377 authors writing about 631 subjects.  It comprises more than 132 issues with over 1,300 articles (more than 30,000 pages in total), and includes some 500 photos, graphs, charts and maps. Like the Journal of the Siam Society, JBRS was, and still is, the premier research journal on Burma.

JBRS was originally published by The Burma Research Society. From the start, the Burma Research Society represented a fusion of the energy and initiative of a generation of both Burmese and Europeans. These early leading luminaries included John S.Furnivall, Charles Duroiselle, U May Oung, Gordon Luce and U Pe Maung Tin. The society’s meetings and Journal were a forum for enthusiastic debate and research on Burma for seventy years.

The Burma Research Society was inaugurated on 29 March 1910 at a meeting held at the Bernard Free Library, Rangoon. Its aims were  “the investigation and encouragement of Art, Science and Literature in relation to Burma and the neighbouring countries”. In 1980, the Society celebrated its seventieth anniversary with a conference at Rangoon University, but was closed down soon after and its Journal ceased publication.

Turnitin is a service for teaching staff to check the similarity of their students work to a range of sources in a classroom setting. Teaching staff can enable originality checking, which allows their students to submit their work to Turnitin.

Turnitin generates an Originality Report, detailing the similarity of the submitted paper to various sources. Teaching staff can use Turnitin as a learning tool, allowing students to generate a report and re-submit the paper after revision. Alternatively, they can use Turnitin purely as a policing tool, generating a final report without the option of resubmission or not allowing the students to view the Originality Report.

Turnitin assists instructors with detecting possible instances of plagiarism in students’ assignments. Instructors can submit assignments for checking on behalf of students, or instructors can authorise students to submit assignments to Turnitin. (Students cannot submit on their own accord.) Turnitin scans the document for similarities with a variety of databases. It then generates a report which highlights possible plagiarized paragraphs and provides the corresponding source(s).
