Students can access Turnitin via their Blackboard accounts. Details available on the IT Intranet.

Researchers who would like to use a software like Turnitin to check their papers before submission to a journal may use iThenticate, a service provided by the Office of Research Publication Services (RPS). More information and contact details are available here: http://rps.kaust.edu.sa/about.html​
