A total of 15 universities that participate in a project conducted at Masaryk University (MU), received a financial contribution to improve the fight against plagiarism. The invention system, which focuses on the search of similar passages in the final work, is just out of university computer scientists. It was originally intended for the final, or essay, but now it will be possible to compare and technical articles, publications and other works of academics. They all will be saved in electronic format called the repository, which will be subject to copyright the future made available to a wider public.
The implementation has received a high school over 13 million. They were used not only to create conditions or technical systems for collecting and archiving the works and their control, but an integral part of the project, for example the creation of rules on how to proceed in finding similar texts.
„The main task of the experts from the Faculty of Science, Masaryk University will develop a new system for the collection, presentation and control of controlled scientific articles, publications and other works created by staff and doctoral students – the so-called Repozitar.cz,“ said project leader Michael Brandeis Faculty of Informatics. "The solution for the centralized collection of complete texts with controlled publication and check against plagiarism does not exist yet. Even in the world, according to information available only collect the metadata, ie not full texts, "he said.
Ten of the fifteen participating universities have plans to acquire, edit, and then connect their local systems for the collection of works of their employees Repozitar.cz system. This database will eventually also be linked with other existing systems to search for plagiarism, such as Theses.cz (higher education qualification works) or Odevzdej.cz (student work).
Repozitar.cz will also make a wider public the results of science while preserving the rights of authors. This so-called open access to scientific information promotes the Open Access movement, which the events are enrolled in October 2010 just as him when he attached his signature to the Berlin Declaration.
