Turnitin is a valuable resource for students to use for checking if the written work is formatted cited and referenced correctly. It’s essentially a software program that is linked to a database of billions of web and print sources as well as student work from around the world. Once you submit your work to Turnitin, an Originality Report will be generated to show which sections of your writing might incorporate the work of others, for example when you use secondary sources. Here you will be able to check and see if you have cited and referenced correctly.
For a brief explanation of Turnitin and how it works, see this short presentation. You can also find the university's full Referencing Guidelines here.
