Skills for Learning > Referencing and Plagiarism
When you submit a draft assignment to Turnitin you get an Originality Report. This report shows blocks of text in your assignment that matches text in other sources such as ebooks, journals, websites and assignments already submitted through Turnitin. This helps you to avoid plagiarism as you can check that you have cited and referenced this content. It won’t check that you have formatted your citations and references correctly, you’ll need to do that for yourself.
Our User Guide How to interpret a Turnitin ‘Originality Report’ [pdf] contains important information about your Originality Report, including how access the original report, what kind of information is held within the report and filtering options.
