This paper explores the detection of derivation links between texts (otherwise called plagiarism, near-duplication, revision, etc.) at the document level. We evaluate the use of textual elements implementing the ideas of specificity and invariance as well as their combination to characterize derivatives. We built a French press corpus based on Wikinews revisions to run this evaluation. We obtain performances similar to the state of the art method (n-grams overlap) while reducing the signature
