What is Turnitin?

It is a “text-matching software” used for submitting assignments and research papers that can be used to detect plagiarism by showing matching sections within the submitted paper. It is then up to the instructor, not Turnitin, to decide whether plagiarism has occurred or not.

Why do We Use Turnitin?

The BUE is trying to increase the awareness of academic honesty by teaching students to learn about and avoid plagiarism, how to give credit to resources of information and to improve their writing skills; besides assissting instructors in checking students’ works for improper citation or internet plagiarism.

It's important to notice these instructions:

  • All students must submit their assignments on Turnitin using the BUE e-mails only. Accounts are limited and if we start duplicating them we will end up with System failure.
  • Submitting the same paper from 2 different accounts will show a high similarity score or 100%.
