hey, i am writing a plagiarism detection application within Java, for my Honours Degree, and was looking for help on which algorithm a can use for comparing two text documents, for textual similarities.

the program will have to compare a submitted report, not source code. this is for plagiarism within thesis, dissertations etc.

i want the program to compare the orginal document being checked to other submissions.

an example of this would be comparing one dissertation to 30 other students in the class, to see if any were plagiarising.

i hope this helps

i dont really know much about this field of computing (text compaarison), so any relevant comments would be appreciated.

many thanx
