Abstract: This dataset, part of the Scissors and Paste Project (https://osf.io/nm2rq), describes instances of reprinting and text reuse (scissors-and-paste journalism) in British newspapers between 1800–1837. It was derived from the 19th-Century British Library Newspapers, Part 1 digitised newspaper collection by using plagiarism detection software to identify instances of substantially similar text. It contains a series of manifests that describe a) instances of shared content b) the likely directionality of copying and c) which instances are evolutionary dead-ends and have no known reprints. It is comprised of 1,824 TSV files, divided into four directories, each representing one month between January 1800 and December 1837.
