To help deter plagiarism, it is College policy to select a random sample of research degree theses, which have been submitted to the Doctoral School, for submission to the plagiarism detection software Turnitin before the examination process is initiated. Exemptions are in place for theses covered by commercial confidentiality agreements. Turnitin reports are reviewed by the School Director of PGR Education. Should concerns be raised, you will be notified by the Doctoral School.
If you would like to use Turnitin as a formative tool to check your draft work prior to submission, please discuss this option with your supervisor.
