Plagiarism Prevention

  • To assist instructors in detecting plagiarism in student work, and to protect students from plagiarism, IUP subscribes to the Turnitin service, funded through technology fees.

    Turnitin is a Web-based plagiarism detection service which reviews submitted material for originality of content. Instructors or students can submit electronic versions of text to Turnitin to generate an “originality report.” This report marks text so that unoriginal content appears underlined, color-coded, and linked to its original source.
