Turnitin: Academic Plagiarism Detector

What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is an online tool created in 1996 by a group of professors from the University of California, Berkeley. This tool allows professors or students to upload papers to the Turnitin database.

How does Turnitin work?

The student’s paper matched against the database of web pages, paper mill essays, and other student papers submitted online. Turnitin then creates an “originality report” that highlights any passages from the paper that might not be authentic, and lists web sites and other resources with content that matches that in the paper.

Getting Started:

Please see the Turnitin Guide page in the Library website for more details if you are instructor or staff.

Here is basic information to use Turnitin.

  1. Visit the Turnitin
  2. Create a new account (Select ‘Student’)
    1. Enter following information and set your account: Class ID ‘5402739’, Class enrollment key ‘unist1’
  3. To self-check: Click the ‘Self Check’ class on your class list → Submit your paper (Please refer to the attached file for detailed guides)

EndNote is a software package designed to help you to organize citations and create a bibliography.

EndNote allows you to:

  • Search for citations in databases(such as ‘PubMed’) and library catalogs.
  • Retrieve relevant citations(from databases like ‘Web of Science’) and import them into EndNote.

Useful Resources:


Zotero is a free citation management software plug in for Mozilla Firefox & Chrome/Safari.

It enables users to collect, manage, and cite research from all types of sources. It is easy to use, lives in your web browser where you do your work, and it is free! Zotero allows you to attach pdfs, notes, images and screenshots to your citations, to organize them into collections for different projects, and to create bibliographies using Word or OpenOffice.

Zotero detects when a book, article, or other resource is being viewed and, with a mouse click, finds and saves the full reference information to a local file. If the source is an online article or web page, Zotero can optionally store a local copy of the source. Users can then add notes, tags, and their own metadata through the in-browser interface. Selections of the local reference library data can later be exported as formatted bibliographies.

Because it is a Firefox add-on, it automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.

For more help, see this official Zotero Guide.
