  • Does anyone have a recommendation for a free site that will check the grammar and punctuation usage within your articles? Is there a such thing as a free plagiarism checker as well? I have tried to search through the threads to see if this has been discussed before, but I am not having any luck. Thank you in advance.
  • Hello
    Hi,
    You can download OpenOffice which is free and typing inside of that,it has spelling,grammer and word count.Type inside of that and copy and paste it to where ever you need it to be.Hope this helps!
  • Here's a link to the free plagiarism checker I use:

    Free Plagiarism Checker

    I run all my DS articles through it, and I haven't been flagged for plagiarism yet (knock on wood). I don't know how it compares to Copyscape, because this is the only checker I've ever used.

    Im not seeing the free version of OpenOffice! Do you have a link to the free version?
  • All versions of OpenOffice are free. It's an open-source program. Here's the download link, though:

    OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

    Just click the second option, "I want to download OpenOffice.org."

    I use it exclusively for word processing and I like it much better than Microsoft Word. Hope that helps!
  • Willow, thanks for the link. I will go look at that myself. I like Word, but their prices are high and they smorgastyle their wares to extract the max profit. When I first got a computer in about 94-95, I had all the programs already on it. I really miss that. Possibly when more people begin using alternatives, their prices will come down.
  • Plagiarism Checker

    I use this and the other plagiarism checker.


    For grammar I use word but it doesn't catch my comma errors. I don't know why I can't get my commas right. I always put them wherever I would pause when speaking, but they aren't always correct.

    I found this article but haven't clicked the links yet to see if they want money to give you detailed results
