Plagiarism detection services

Plagiarism detection services, such as Turnitin.com, use specialized technology to compare student papers with article databases, research paper mills, items on the web as well as their own databases containing previously submitted papers. Your professor may ask you to submit your papers electronically to Turnitin.com via the myCourses Dropbox.

Turnitin.com will create an "originality report" that shows how much of your paper is original and how much, if any, is possibly plagiarized.
