Can I use Turnitin for free to check my papers?

The only challenge for most students to use the Turnitin to check their work is because they do not sell directly to students.

If you get to their sales page, you are likely to see this!

You are allowed to use your Turnitin to polish your papers before submission. However, your ability to use it for free depends on the nature of your university. If your university offers it for students, then you are lucky!

Some universities have integrated Turnitin within their online systems such that the students can log in and upload their papers and check.

However, in some universities, such privileges are only left for for the administrators and the tutors. In such a case, that is where we step in and help the students to check their papers for free and email them the Turnitin Originality Report.

We, being an academic organization, have an authorized access to Turnitin and are thus allowed to check the students’ papers on unlimited basis.

Please just send us an email and we will help you accordingly to check your paper. Do not let plagiarism make you fail.

What is the acceptable percentage in Turnitin Reports?

We already have a video on the Acceptable Plagiarism Percentage on Turnitin 

The acceptable Turnitin Percentage depends on the level of education and the university policy.

This simply means that those at high school or lower-level colleges may tolerate a slightly higher plagiarism level that those at postgraduate and graduate levels.

It is often assumed that a graduate and post graduate student has full understanding of what plagiarism is and the possible consequences of engaging in the same. Therefore, they should keep the plagiarism as minimum as possible (5% and below)

For undergraduate students, most universities allow 0-10% plagiarism level. However, it is advisable for the student to submit a PLAGIARISM FREE WORK to enable them scoop maximum marks.

How does Turnitin detect plagiarism in papers?

Turnitin simply detect plagiarism by comparing the uploaded work, vis a vis the content on the internet and the content in their databases.

The Turnitin database is comprised of all the previously submitted papers.

Turnitin uses sophisticated software to ensure that is draws a clear comparison and generate a reliable report that provides a fair view of the content uploaded on it.

What this simply means is that you cannot copy paste the content from the internet does not upload a previously submitted paper to Turnitin and escape plagiarism.

To avoid such problems, it is recommended that you write all your papers in your own words and cite all the borrowed ideas accordingly.

Does Turnitin check the references?

The answer is YES or NO depending on the settings of the Turnitin being used. In its default form, Turnitin checks every text within the document (except the images and diagrams).

However, this often gives a false report because references should never be part of the work to be checked for plagiarism.

By their nature, references cannot be paraphrased. There is no way you can change the author’s names and the publication tittle.

Therefore, the reference section is the only section that is allowed to show plagiarism.

To give a true reflection of the plagiarism report within the uploaded paper, it is necessary to evade checking the reference section.

Within the Turnitin Settings, there is that option of omitting the reference section while checking for plagiarism and this helps to give the true reflection and the percentage in the Turnitin reports.

How long does it take to get a plagiarism report from Turnitin?

This also depends on the length of the paper uploaded into the Turnitin system.

What this mean is that very lengthy papers may take more time to check than a one or a two-page document.

Usually, it takes less than 5 minutes to check a 0–20-page work.

It may take about 5-10 minutes to check a 100-page document.

On average, it takes about 5 minutes to check your work and get the Turnitin Plagiarism Report.

We have also noticed that highly plagiarized documents may take more time (like 2 minutes more) to check than a zero plagiarized work.

Therefore, you are likely to get your paper fast if it is free from plagiarism.

How many times can I resubmit my work on Turnitin?

This is where most students get it wrong and thus your attention is needed here!

First, you need to understand that you can choose to store the submitted work within the paper repository or not. There is a setting that allows for this significant difference.

If you choose to store the paper within the paper repository, then you can never resubmit the work again, because it will show 100% plagiarism.

Most universities opt to store the papers within the repository so that other students can never resubmit the same paper again.

For our case, we choose not to store our papers within the paper repository because the papers we check are not ours and we want to give the students the opportunity to submit and resubmit as many times as possible.

With non repository turnitin, you can check the same paper as many times as possible without worrying of self-plagiarism because your paper will not be stored in turnitin database.

How do I check my Turnitin plagiarism report?

The best way to check the Turnitin Report is to download the PDF version of the report from your Turnitin to enable you have a comprehensive view of it.

The PDF has several sections that helps to illustrated in different colors the parts that are plagiarized and the areas where the plagiarism comes from.

Can I delete a submission on Turnitin?

Why NOT?

In fact, we always delete all the papers we check for our students so that the paper is NEVER stored within the Turnitin database.

This enables them to re-upload the paper without having to worry about plagiarism.

Any paper that is not deleted from the Turnitin will read 100% plagiarism the next time it is uploaded by the student or any other person.

Even if you submitted your paper in repository turnitin by mistake and its stuck there, just contact us, we will delete it for you

Can Turnitin detect old and previously submitted papers?

The right to delete the papers submitted within the Turnitin database depends on the user.

As stated above, we delete all papers we upload within Turnitin immediately after downloading their PDF version of the report.

At the same time, papers checked with non-repository turnitin are not saved in turnitin database.

Turnitin as a company does not delete old papers. Instead, they store them within their database so that a similar paper is never used again by another student in future.

It is a way of preventing plagiarism by preventing a former student from passing his work to a future student for submission.

What do the colors mean in Turnitin Report?

Basically, there are five colors in Turnitin Reports. Each color indicates the severity of the plagiarism within the paper with read indicating highly plagiarized source.
