Please consult your research supervisor with regard to the plagiarism detection tools at the University
At Unisa, Turnitin is used.
Turnitin is an internet based anti-plagiarism detection software that is aimed at promoting quality academic writing within learning Institutions. This allows students to develop quality writing skills as it facilitates rich, significant feedback on their submitted work. Hence in this process, they are able to improve their academic writing.
Instructors/Lecturers require students to submit their written assignments to Turnitin. The system then checks the submitted document for non-originality (possible plagiarism) by comparing submitted papers to several databases/repositories on the world wide web. Instructors/Lecturers are then able to monitor a student's similarity index.
Make use of the Turnitin website for more inforamtion.
Please find the attached Turnitin guide and the Turnitin form for your information.
The completed form must be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not able to access the Turnitin.
