We understand this concern. However, since the Scribbr Plagiarism Check does not store any documents that it checks in the shared Ephorus database, it’s impossible for this to happen (even if your schools also uses Ephorus software).
As an added precaution, you can also personally delete your details and documents from Scribbr’s own server as soon as you’ve received the results of your Plagiarism Check.
The results of the Scribbr Plagiarism Check will be 99% the same as the Ephorus check used at your school. The Scribbr Plagiarism Check is optimized for students, which means that you will receive a detailed report with extra information to fix and prevent plagiarism.
Schools often have their own database of (prior) theses. Scribbr has no access to those databases. When you copy data from another thesis that is not publicly accessible, the Scribbr Plagiarism Check will neither be able to detect plagiarism nor identify the source of this data.
However, most theses are actually publicly accessible since many universities and schools have public databases. This means that the Scribbr Plagiarism Check is able to find these theses.
The Scribbr Plagiarism Check takes about 10 minutes to finish. For documents larger than 35.000 words it can take a bit longer. As soon as the check has finished we will send you an e-mail.
Almost all European languages are supported by the Scribbr Plagiarism Check. You can find a complete list of the supported languages below:
No, the Scribbr Plagiarism Check does not result in your document being published in any public database (unlike other plagiarism check services).
As soon as you’ve received the result from the Plagiarism Check, you can directly delete all details and documents from the Scribbr server.

Every time we put something off, the excuse is some variation of the same: "I'll get to it later. I won't be long. I've got plenty of time." Once that moment is gone, though, it's gone forever.
While it may be tempting to think that it's okay to put something off, the truth is you'll never get those minutes back. You can allocate future time to doing tasks you could do now, but that's essentially spending on credit.
Consider these 7 golden rules of time management for effective management of our most valuable commodity.
1. Time is fleeting. Think about it...the moment you started reading this is gone, never to be regained. It seems we get so caught up in petty circumstances that we forget what we set out to do, and before you know it, the day is gone!
2. Time is valuable. You always have time to make money; but you can never have enough money to make time!
3. Time is unforgiving. The amazing thing about your time; even through no fault of your own, even "wasted" time will never stand still.
4. Time is money. You must be constantly asking yourself, "Am I doing the most productive thing I can be doing right now?" Watch out for those "wasted" moments we were talking about earlier.
5. Time is always changing. We all must constantly renew our minds, and let the past be just that...the past! It can't help you now, aside from the learning experience, don't dwell on it.
6. Time is the ultimate judge. We have all heard "time will tell!" Well, there is some truth to that, as the future has a way of finding any flaw in the plan. Pre-planning will save massive amounts of your precious commodity called time.
7. Time is in your control. We can all be more in control of our day and how we spend it. Today should have been planned out yesterday, and tomorrow should be thought about today.
Time can't be saved. It can only be spent! We spend it at the exact rate of one minute per minute. We can’t spend more or less no matter how hard we try. We can’t spend more than 5 minutes in five minutes with a friend, and we can’t spend less than 5 minutes in five minutes being angry in traffic. Our rate of spending is fixed. All we can control is where we choose to invest…
