  10. Depending on the size of your paper, it may take up to 24 hours to generate the Similarity score report. Once the score is generated, you will see a percentage bubble on the Submission details page. The color of the score bubble is based on the amount of matching text in a document:
    1. Light blue color: 0% matching text
    2. Dark blue color: 1 - 24% matching text
    3. Yellow color: 25 - 49% matching text
