Turnitin is an online service used by academic institutions to detect plagiarism. It compares submitted documents against a vast database of sources and student papers to identify similarities. The system generates an “Originality Report” that shows the percentage of similarity and provides links to matching sources. Instructors can use the platform to provide feedback and grade submissions.
