Urkund is a system for detecting plagiarism
Lund University has a shared license for the text-matching tool Urkund. This means that all lecturers at 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, to prevent and detect cheating and plagiarism.
