Abstract— Plagiarism is one of the biggest problems of research findings, hypotheses, theories, hypothetical strategies,
scientific research and engineering. Plagiarism is understood as or analysis, or an enlarged borrowing even with attribution.
presenting, intentionally or otherwise, someone else’s words, Plagiarism is always a violation of someone else’s intellectual
thoughts, analyses, argumentation, pictures, techniques, property rights. Obviously, each discipline advances by
computer programmers etc. Plagiarism has a wider meaning, framework on the knowledge and understanding gained and
paraphrasing someone else’s texts by replacing a few words by

synonyms or interchanging some sentences in own way is also

In this work SCAM algorithm is modified for distributed algorithm
computing platform using Hadoop. In this work different
capacity datasets are tested for plagiarism using modified
SCAM on Hadoop. It is found that execution time doesn’t
increase considerable for bigger dataset also and data will be
distributed across the cluster of machines. This technique
takes sometimes for finding results gives output in short time
with speed and accuracy and we are easily process and handle
big data sets. So hadoop is used for performance enhancement.
