Does VeriCite detect self-plagiarism?

Yes. If a student submits the same paper more than once within a single course, VeriCite assumes that each submission is a draft and does not flag the paper as plagiarized. However, if the student submits the same paper to more than one course, VeriCite will identify the work as plagiarized. Because VeriCite reports are dynamic, reports in both courses will be updated to identify this self-plagiarism.
