Be selective in choosing the part of the paper you are going to type into the search engines. By picking unusual phrases (four to six words) and key words you narrow down the options provided by the search engine and save your time in checking them.
Include suspected quotes and phrases within parentheses. This way the search engines will retrieve only exact matches.
Search for the material cited in the bibliography and compare with the student's paper. Some cases of plagiarism involve the use of large chunks of text of the material cited in the bibliography without correct acknowledgment of the source.
