What is Wiki?

Plagiarism Detection is the process of checking papers against external sources and identifying sections of papers that may have been plagiarized.

The University of Iowa has licensed Turnitin, an online, automatic plagiarism detection service for campus-wide use, and we encourage all instructors to utilize this tool.

Students submit their papers via ICON (Canvas) and the instructor receives an originality report showing possible matches between the submitted paper and Turnitin's database and internet resources. It is important to note that the final decision about the presence of a plagiarism lies with the instructor.
