Abstract

The 1st International Competition on Plagiarism Detection, held in conjunction with the 3rd PAN workshop on Uncovering Plagiarism, Authorship, and Social Software Misuse, brought together researchers from many disciplines around the exciting retrieval task of automatic plagiarism detection. The competition was divided into the subtasks external plagiarism detection and intrinsic plagiarism detection, which were tackled by 13 participating groups. An important by-product of the competition is an evaluation framework for plagiarism detection, which consists of a large-scale plagiarism corpus and detection quality measures. The framework may serve as a unified test environment to compare future plagiarism detection research. In this paper we describe the corpus design and the quality measures, survey the detection approaches developed by the participants, and compile the achieved performance results of the competitors.
