Turnitin’s plagiarism checker detects plagiarism in your text and checks for other writing issues.
Proving Originality. Promoting Integrity. Preventing Plagiarism. And Protecting YOU.
You’re working on a paper and you’ve just written a line that seems kind of familiar. Did you read it somewhere while you were researching the topic? If you did, does that count as plagiarism? Now that you’re looking at it, there are a couple of other lines that you know you borrowed from somewhere. You didn’t bother with a citation at the time because you weren’t planning to keep them. But now they’re an important part of your paper. Is it still plagiarism if you’re using less than a paragraph?
Using someone else’s text without attribution is plagiarism, whether you meant to do it or not. Unintentional plagiarism of even a sentence or two can have serious consequences. For students, plagiarism often means a failing grade, academic probation, or worse. Fortunately, there is a tool that can help. Turnitin’s online plagiarism checker can help you ensure that you have properly identified and cited anything in your text that isn’t 100 percent original.
Whether you’re a student writing an essay, a teacher grading papers, or a writer working on original content for the web, a plagiarism scan will not only save you time, but also help you avoid writing mistakes.
Students, educators, and professional writers alike trust Turnitin to help them produce original, well-written, and well-sourced work. Save time and see better results with Turnitin’s plagiarism checker and writing feedback app.
