Turnitin is a Web-based learning tool to prevent and detect plagiarism. Many of the School’s instructors require that students submit their required papers to Turnitin. This is to protect the academic integrity of your work and also to ensure you possess the requisite academic citation skills. Once your paper is submitted, Turnitin will compare its content to content in three primary databases:
- Current and extensively archived content publicly accessible on the Internet.
- Commercial papers from books, newspapers and journals.
- Any other student papers previously submitted to Turnitin.
