The Turnitin and iThenticate Review project aimed to find out if Oxford’s plagiarism screening and awareness tools (including Turnitin and iThenticate) continue to meet the needs of staff and students. A staff survey was conducted during September 2017.
Details about the review, including a summary of survey findings and reasons for the recommendations, are available from the Turnitin and iThenticate Review web page.
Based on findings from the survey, (completed by 93 staff members), along with information gathered from the higher education sector, the project recommended:
- Retain licences for both Turnitin and iThenticate
- Review expected improved product offerings, including those of possible competitors, after November 2019
In the meantime, there is potential to enhance service provision, and to increase awareness across the University about Turnitin and iThenticate, and their intended purposes.
