Enhanced Plagiarism Resolution Service (EnPReS)

The IEEE Intellectual Property Rights Office is pleased to offer EnPReS, the Enhanced Plagiarism Resolution Service for the benefit of all Society/Council publication volunteers who may be looking for a quick and authoritative decision on the often-challenging complaints involving the inappropriate copying by one author of another author’s work. These types of challenges may occur when a publications volunteer is hard-pressed to fit yet another responsibility into an already over-crowded schedule, or when a particular complaint appears to be especially full of potential difficulties or one that might seem to put a volunteer at some legal risk.

CrossCheck plagiarism detection

CrossCheck is an online database of publications that is used to detect plagiarism in submitted manuscripts. CrossCheck allows publication volunteers (e.g., Editors-in-Chief and Conference Pub Chairs) to submit a manuscript and compare the text against its database. Within a few minutes, CrossCheck reports on a similarity percentage assigned to the paper.

IEEE Electronic Copyright Form

The electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF) is a highly effective tool that not only accomplishes its main goal of transferring ownership rights of the intellectual property to IEEE, but does so by also saving significant amounts of time and effort on the part of IEEE authors, volunteers and staff

All interested volunteers not currently using the eCF are invited to register to take advantage of this important tool.
