Turnitin is an online text-matching tool that checks students' work against existing sources for improper citations or potential plagiarism.

Students can access Turnitin via their Blackboard accounts, under Courses>Directed Research. For assistance, please contact the ITHelpdesk.

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:​
