What is iThenticate?

iThenticate is a text matching software tool, which is used by leading scholarly publishers and research institutions. iThenticate will compare a submission to an extensive database of web pages and scholarly content, and produce a similarity score and report. iThenticate is available to all UQ staff and Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates.

Why would I use iThenticate?

iThenticate has been developed by the producers of Turnitin for academics and researchers who want to review their work prior to publication, to check for originality and to ensure they have cited non-original work appropriately. Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates may also submit papers to iThenticate and share the submission, score and report with supervisors and colleagues.
