Urkund

System for detecting plagiarism

Lund University has a shared license for the text-matching tool Urkund. This means that lecturers at all the University departments can use Urkund to check student work.

What is Urkund?

Urkund is an email-based system which automatically checks student work against existing texts from three central source areas – the Internet, certain published material and Urkund’s own archive. Urkund is used at many Swedish and international higher education institutions in the context of prevention and detection of cheating and plagiarism.
