What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is plagiarism detection software that scans student work for matched text by comparing the work to a large database of student work, publications, and materials on the internet.

Thanks to Turnitin’s unparalleled index of archived student papers (929 million and counting) student collusion, i.e., the improper sharing of work both within and across institutions, is discouraged. Additionally, 67 billion web pages and 178 million journal articles and subscription content sources, protects against search engine plagiarism and helps ensure originality of research papers, theses, and dissertations by comparing them to online and offline subscription content.

The Turnitin service is available through an interface built in to AIU's Learning Management System (ODeL Portal).
