What is the edas similarity score

I would really appreciate if someone could provide an
insight in to what it really means. It seems that this
functionality is only available to chairs.

Based on the very useful comments, I am updating
this post. The score ranges from 0-100 indicating
the similarity of the article to other papers. Lesser
the better! Conference chairs use this tool for
determining paper similarities. To quote edas "High scores,
e.g., above 30, may indicate that parts of the paper
have been copied from elsewhere." So beware!

The similarity score can be seen or located on your
edas submission next to the pdf submission and format
checks.

It is a score of the similarity
of the document submitted with other
previous submissions. But no official
source or confirmation on this
information though.

I am guessing smaller the score,
the better it is .. or rather...
that is what I am hoping..
I am a 4 :)

What is range of the similarity score? I got an 8 on one of my submissions.

It is used in ieee conference management
for finding similarity between submissions.
Unfortunately, even I dont see a range
on the score.. I wish they would make
these measurements more transparent!!

I got a 5 on one of my papers
and 8 on another accepted.
I am not sure if it means a
lot but a sort of help says
it is the similarity to other papers.

Now there is a definition provided by edas:

The similarity score indicates how similar this paper is to other papers, with values ranging from 0 (no similarities) to 100 (completely the same). High scores, e.g., above 30, may indicate that parts of the paper have been copied from elsewhere.

That makes me feel a lot better at 8,
Thanks for posting the range.

Has anyone seen a similarity score greater than 15?

I saw this score while submitting my papers for the IEEE ICC and WCNC conferences. This post definitely helps. Thanks for posting!

Thank for the post!

Anyone has an idea if this checks similarities among papers submitted to the same conference or checks similarities among all IEEE papers out there?

Usually conferences ask you not to submit the same paper to be reviewed by multiple conferences and I wonder if this similarity score mechanism would catch it if someone submitted a paper to be reviewed under more than one conference.

Cheers!

Thanks for the post. I got a score of 10 for my HotP2P paper.

I am not sure if this has to do with just the name of the paper or the contents of the pdf uploaded to edas too. Anyone have a clue?

BTW I got a score of 6 on my submission to IEEE WOWMOM

Has anyone had a score greater than 20 on EDAS?

i recvd 16 in one of my accepted papers (published in 2008)

Anonymous said...

I have now 17, wonder will be accepted or not?

Tom said...

The paper getting accepted is dependent on the reviews so there is no way of knowing that! However, the score of 17 is on a base of 100 so it is up to the reviewers to infer how close your work is to other related work.

Similarity score increases when you are directly copy pasting already existing text documents, which are available over internet. If you want less similarity score just change the language.

i got a six..!!! still waiting to know if my paper will be accepted..!!!

This is what EDAS has to say about its similarity score:

“The similarity score indicates how much the paper resembles other papers, expressed in a number from 0 (no similarity) to 100 (fully identical to another paper). The number is derived by a similarity checking tool. Typically, numbers above 25 indicate that substantial parts of the paper have been found elsewhere. The similarity check is a tool that simplify does text comparisons against other published papers and reports (using Google). It is then up to the chair or a committee to decide whether any textual similarities are legitimately-credited quotations from work done by others, appropriate re-use of the author’s own work (e.g., a technical report or a workshop paper might appear in parts in a conference paper), self-plagiarism or plagiarism. The latter two are serious lapses of professional ethics and may, depending on the customs and procedures of the professional society sponsoring the conference or journal, lead to the withdrawal of the paper, a public apology by the author (if the paper has already been published), a letter to the academic supervisor of the student or faculty and possibly a publication ban for a set time period.”

I am wondering exactly what algorithm they use for deciding the similarity rating of the papers. Essentially, they will have to compare every paper ever submitted with every other paper?

I have 13. "177 fragments were analysed. As a result 24 fragments (13.6%) were found in other documents". In that 24, 17 of them are in REFERENCE section. Do they want me to change the title and authors of citations!?....:-). What I mean is, it's not about the score and all about the positions of the fragments. you can check that by clicking on the score. Number of the yellow fragments are in 3rd or 4th section (the core sections of the paper) may have great effect.

i got similarity score as 11.
is this high rate?

Any score less 20 would be fine...Less than 10? Even better. In most cases the similarities are for the references, so they can be ignored but the one's in the body should be taken care.

please read this document. After reading this I am confident that my similarity score of 23% will not be a problem.
My highest similarity score from a single source is just 6% and I have also cited that source in my paper.
