How to find for the copied articles?

Hello CE'ans 😀
I was wondering, is there any way by which, we can find for copied Articles?
For eg:
We are having any paper-presentation competition in college, and we want "the original" content from all the participants.
Is there any way, we can find it for copied source? Any help or tool on internet?

That was about the text we have in Word Docs. But, how to find for copied content of websites?
Is there any tool?
Any help is appreciated.. 😀

Just do a random string search in Google. Copy few lines of text from the paper and paste them in Google.

Okay. 😀
And what about any website page? If we want to see whether it is copied from other websites?
Is there any tool or something?

Google will tell you whether the content has been copied from other websites.
There are plagiarism checking websites such as:
https://www.plagiarismchecker.com/
https://www.dustball.com/cs/plagiarism.checker/

Either you paste in the content or give the website URL, and you are done! 😀

Copyscape is another website that checks for content copy paste 😀

Copyscape is the most trusted or mostly used for detection of copied article.

Right; but it has its own limitations. I've developed a sight that quickly tells me whether the content has been copied or not. I'm quite used to the way people write and use the language. It turns out that I can find copy with over 80% accuracy.

But what if.Some answers or something which is similar everywhere.
For example if you take any computer languages.
Its syntax and its demo programs are almost same.Or some technology where most of words and sentences are same.

Even though it is self-created ,it is considered as a copied material.

For these things you cannot apply this kind of checks... 😲

Definitions, syntax can not be taken a copied, you can not rewrite Newton's laws for avoiding copying but the explanation around it should not be a copy.
