what is the difference between "Sources Overview" and All sources"?

Based on what you display list of sources in "Sources overview", what do you mean with "overlapping sources"?

  • Thanks Gill ,I mean in originality report you have 2 view for sources (all sources - sources overview), in sources overview you display list of sources and you hide others based on overlapping, what do you mean with overlapping.

    If 2 sources have the same matches, you display one of them or what do you mean?

      Moawia Abdalla Apologies, I had to ask a colleague for clarification on this one as it's a little confusing.

      Sources overview % shows the percentage of the paper against the strongest match. If multiple sources overlap for the same match it shows the highest one. It will add up to the Overall Similarity. All sources straight-up shows the % of the paper that matches against the source. So if I match against Wikipedia and a blog with the same paragraph of text, 100 words were matched on Wikipedia but only 93 words were matched on the blog for the same text Wikipedia would be shown in Sources Overview. We then look at how much of the paper is comprised of that source. All sources includes overlapping sources. So, where we ignored the blog previously it will be included in that stat. This can make the All Sources higher than the Sources Overview as it is a direct comparison of % of the paper that is comprised of the source.
