Fed up of 100% matches of cover sheets and essay titles in Turnitin Originality reports? If so, read on.
In showing users at the University how to use Turnitin for Admissions, I’m constantly surprised at the number of new features that appear.
The latest is one which was alluded to at 5th International Plagiarism Conference in Gateshead in July, namely Phrase exclusion. This feature has recently appeared in Turnitin for Admissions and allows an Instructor to paste in phrases which will be ignored when the Originality report is generated. Ideal for pasting in the cover sheet of a submission or the essay title.
It works excellently. I hope it appears in the academic version of Turnitin soon.
