Turnitin

Turnitin is a web based system used for detecting and preventing plagiarism and improper citations in student homeworks, projects and papers. Once loaded into the system, student works are compared against a vast database. The system detects excerpts, suspicious similarities, uncited references etc. and produces a similarity report. Turnitin's control database consists of academic databases, academic journals and publications, 200+ million student homework, 17+ billion web pages.

Passwords for using Turnitin will be given by BU Library to the academics on demand. Academics who want to use Turnitin need to provide their full name, surname and email address to burcin.basatli@boun.edu.tr address.
