Turnitin is a plagiarism detection tool optimized for use in classroom settings. It can be used in graduate student courses, but it is not recommended for use in checking graduate grant proposals, articles prior to submission for publication, thesis, or dissertations.
iThenticate is a plagiarism detection tool designed to assist academic authors in avoiding plagiarism and copyright infringement when preparing items for submission to journals, conferences, and funding agencies. This program is often used by publishers to check originality of submitted articles prior to publication. Papers reviewed using this service are NOT added to or indexed in any other database and remain the proprietary property of the individual author. Please note that the University does not have a campus subscription to iThenticate.
