Plagiarism refers to "the act of copying material without actually conceding the original source". Plagiarism has seen a wide spread activity in the recent times. The increased in the number of materials available now in the electronic form and the easy access to the internet has increased plagiarism. Various techniques are available which help us to detect plagiarism. This paper proposes algorithm foe plagiarism detection over web using semantic networks. It also shows that a proposed method is in general capable for retrieving the source document from the web using a search engine API when sentences are being infringed. It also calculates the threshold value for different URLs.
