SciDetect (an open source software to automatically check for fake scientific papers)

logoujfbase_quad

rs_logoSciDetect is an open source software program for evaluating academic papers. The software discovers text that has been generated with the SCIgen computer program and other fake-paper generators like Mathgen and Physgen. SciDetect scans Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files and compares them against a corpus of fake scientific papers. Using intertextual distance, SciDetect can discover any automatically generated text materials and indicate whether an entire document or its parts are genuine or not. The software relies on sensitivity thresholds to report suspicious activity. SciDetect is a collaboration between Springer-Verlag GmbH and Université Joseph Fourier.
