Automatic plagiarism prevention is a Swedish invention and URKUND has been at the forefront of its development since 1999. During this time, URKUND’s constant development has meant that the academic service has evolved to become the most effective plagiarism prevention and detection system available on the market.
Today, interest is shown not only from Scandinavian and European universities but from all around the world. University publishing houses, government organisations and private enterprises have also seen the benefits of URKUND and use the system to assure that expensive consultant reports and texts for publication have not been plagiarised.
URKUND is a Germanic word, its meaning is something along the lines of “original document”, “unaltered original” or “deed”. Its English pronunciation is similar to how one says “gherkin”: i.e. “erkin” [ɜːkɪn].
