This corpus is outdated. Please use its successor PAN-PC-11:

The PAN plagiarism corpus 2010 (PAN-PC-10) is a corpus for the evaluation of automatic plagiarism detection algorithms. For research purposes the corpus can be used free of charge.

The PAN-PC-10 contains documents in which artificial plagiarism has been inserted automatically as well as documents in which simulated plagiarism has been inserted manually. The former have been constructed using a so-called random plagiarist, a computer program which constructs plagiarism according to a number of parameters, while the latter have been obtained with crowdsourcing via Amazon's Mechanical Turk.
