Writing Help Simplified – Bibme
https://www.bibme.org/grammar-and-plagiarism/

Anyone committed to continued learning and improvement knows that feedback is one of the most valuable resources available. The commentary and critique left in the margins by your instructor offer invaluable information that you can apply to your next paper as well as any similar assignments in the future. It cannot, unfortunately, change the grade of the paper in your hands. This is where the BibMe Plus tool comes to the rescue! You’ve done the research, drafted and revised your paper, and took care to credit all of your sources. The last step before you submit your paper is to proofread it in order to catch any missed errors or citations that may have escaped you, but which are unlikely to escape your teacher. The BibMe Plus grammar checker gives you the feedback you need to help polish and improve your paper before you turn it in, not after. Not only does it flag spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, but it also gives you helpful tips that explain why the item is flagged so you can correct it, learn from it, and become a better writer. A quick scan of your paper with the BibMe plagiarism tool will also help to reveal any passages that, while perhaps unintentional, would nevertheless be considered plagiarizing. With tailored tips and an easy-to-use interface, our writing tool can help you unlock the magic to more natural, relaxed, and efficient editing to help ensure that your writing is clear, consistent, and properly cited. The best part about it? Instant suggestions. No waiting for a human proofreader to respond to you or racing across campus to get to the writing center before it closes. The BibMe Plus writing tool is available precisely when and where you need it. Conduct an on-demand spell check and grammar check at any time of day to validate the integrity of your work, and to generate any missing citations, all in a matter of seconds.
