Turnitin.com can assist with educating students to prevent plagiarism. This website compares submitted papers against three main repositories of information: 14 billion current and archived web pages; 150 million student papers; and 110 million content items from academic publishers. The University makes a significant investment in the site license for this software ($20,000+ each year).
The Turnitin.com website offers a Training Center that provides step-by-step information on how to get started. Once instructors have created a user profile (click New Account in the upper right corner), they will be able to follow the steps to create class accounts.
