Novus Scan works completely offline, so you can be sure that your documents won't be uploaded to the internet and you won't violate intellectual property agreements. You can build a database of documents, whether its your own previously written work, reference materials used in research, or term papers from classes that you're teaching. Novus Scan is a great tool for freelance writers, enabling you to prevent accidental self plagiarism and find text that you've accidentally used for another client's project. If you're a teacher, Novus Scan will help you compare term papers and other student assignments. For students, put your reference and research documents into Novus Scan's database and then scan your document to ensure that you haven't accidentally copied any text from other sources.
