The article presents information on web search engines being used as anti-plagiarism tools. It discusses two search engines, Goggle and Scirus which have potential for detecting plagiarism in electronic science and engineering theses. The Scirus searcher is capable of finding more matches quickly against journal articles. Google, on the other hand identified more matches against government documents and corporate websites. The difference in the types of documents retrieved by the two search engines suggests that using both search engines would maximize effectiveness.
