What is Turnitin?

‘Turnitin’ refers to Turnitin Plagiarism Detection Software supplied under license from Turnitin UK .

  • Submitted work is matched against a database of previously submitted work from every institution which subscribes to Turnitin, (including international institutions); current and archived internet pages, and databases of journals and periodicals (e.g. Gale and Emerald).
  • Turnitin does not detect plagiarism: it is a text-matching software which provides a report on whether a student's work is original (no matching text) or unoriginal.
  • If there is matching text in a piece of work, then all instances of matching text should be checked for full and correct referencing.
