Turnitin is a tool to help faculty and students develop and evaluate written scholarship. It estimates the originality of written work so students can properly reference source material. The tool generates a “similarity report” by comparing an uploaded paper to a database of web pages, articles, books, and other uploaded files.
Each semester, the Graduate Writing Lab offers programs on academic writing and communication topics. These programs bring together graduate and professional students, postdoctoral scholars, and researchers who want to learn about best-practices in academic writing, publishing, and grant writing.
