What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is an online text-matching service that works by comparing electronically submitted papers to a range of sources and databases located on the Internet as well as the work of other students whose papers have been submitted into the system. Especially for students, the aim of Turnitin is to encourage high standards of academic integrity and adhere to the proper forms of citation.

When papers are submitted into Turnitin, sections of the papers that match other sources are highlighted and identified. The paper with the highlighted matched text forms a Similarity Report.
