Similarity Check (formerly known as CrossCheck) was first integrated in 2009 and is an excellent tool for reviewers and editors to assess the risk of similarity or plagiarism. Aries has added the journal-configured option for authors to view the Similarity Check report for their manuscript.

When viewing a submitted manuscript, the author is presented with an overall similarity percentage score, shown here. To see the full similarity report, the author simply clicks the action link, the report pops up, and the author can further analyze the results.
