The legal and ethical issues surrounding the use of information goes beyond properly citing sources and avoiding plagiarism. Researchers should be knowledgeable about issues related to privacy and security, censorship and freedom of speech, as well as have an understanding of intellectual property, copyright, and fair use.
Turnitin.com helps educators check students’ work for proper citation or possible plagiarism by comparing it against three continually updated content bases: billions of pages of web content, plus hundreds of millions of pages of proprietary content from subscription-based publications, and over 80 million student papers previously submitted to Turnitin. Easy-to-read Originality Reports help teach students about proper citation and ensure their academic integrity.
As a college student, you may be asked by your instructors to submit papers to the Turnitin.com service. To do so, your instructor will need to give you a class I.D. number and an enrollment password. Once you have this information, follow the steps to create a new user account. Instructors will first need to contact the Office of Academic Affairs for login and account information.
