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.
Learn about Peer-Review groups and how they can benefit your writing progress! We offer groups for dissertation writing, research paper writing, and fellowship writing.
Join other graduate and professional school students for structured writing sessions to work on your prospectus, research paper, dissertation chapter, or other writing project!
