From: Estimating the prevalence of text overlap in biomedical conference abstracts

Highly similar abstracts identified by eTBLAST 5 samples of 100 abstract pairs for manual review Abstracts verified by expert classification Confidence interval (95%) Example
20,857 (out of 144,149) Text overlap (same meeting) 126 (12.6%) 10.6 to 14.8% Figure S1
Text overlap (different meeting) 223 (22.3%) 19.8 to 25.0% Figure S2
Text overlap (Medline) 238 (23.8%) 21.2 to 26.6% Figure S3
Plagiarized 9 (2.3%) 1.2 to 4.8% Figure S5
