Turnitin is a similarity checking program to check the originality of students and researchers’ writings and prevent potential plagiarism.

  • It compares papers against Internet pages, subscription repository of periodicals, journals, publications and repository of previously submitted papers.
  • Students or researchers can check the similarity of their writings by ‘Self-Check’ functions. Professors and instructors also check their students’ assignments and papers.
  • E-Rater Grammer Check: Turnitin automatically checks papers for grammar, usage, mechanics, style and spelling errors.
  • More information: Turnitin (http://www.turnitin.com/)
