However, in the free version, there is no avenue for upload of document.

Other plagiarism checkers in competition with Quetext are : Duplichecker, Viper,  ArticleChecker, SmallSEOTools, Dustball, Copyscape etc.

In this QueText review we concluded that Quetext has a competitive advantage over its counterparts, it’s effective and accurate and even gives additional information on the areas being plagiarised in a write up. However, an increase in the number of plagiarism checks and the word count in the free version would be more welcoming.
