Springerís SciDetect Software Tracks Down Fake Papers

Springer Science+Business Media and Joseph Fourier University (UJF) teamed up to launch SciDetect, an open source software program for discovering fake scientific papers. It recognizes text that was created with paper generators such as SCIgen, Mathgen, or Physgen and can tell whether an entire document or just parts are fake.

“Although software cannot supplant peer reviews and academic evaluation, SciDetect lends publishers an additional hand in the fight against fraud and fake papers,” says UJF’s Cyril Labbé, who worked with Springer on the software. It “can scan large volumes of materials and give publishers further assurance about the reliability and quality of accepted papers.”

For more information, read the press release.
