Increased access to the Internet has dramatically increased the sources from which students can deliberately or accidentally copy information. This paper discusses the motivation to design, implement, and deploy an Internet based plagiarism detection system, called PAIRwise, to address this growing problem. The authors give details as to how they detect plagiarism and the various development phases the authors went through before releasing PAIRwise as an open source software tool. The major conclusion is that it is possible to deploy an automated plagiarism system that is an effective, customizable, and affordable tool for investigating how plagiarism affects academic integrity.
