TurnItIn Brief

TurnItIn is Internet-based plagiarism-detection service. Higher learning institutions typically buy licenses to use the software-as-a-service website which checks submitted documents against its database and the content of other websites with the aim of identifying plagiarism.

To support member’s effort in upholding academic integrity, the secretariat has negotiated a special price for TERNET members to acquire licenses. There are two packages available for TERNET members: Originality Check (OC) and Feedback studio (FBS). The OC package checks for plagiarism while the FBS package provide a feedback system in addition to checking for plagiarism.
