Turnitin is text matching software that checks for potential referencing errors by comparing your assignment to billions of pages of content on the Internet, in books, newspapers, scholarly journals, magazines and student papers.
Getting an account
A Turnitin account allows you to check your own writing for improperly used content, inadvertent plagiarism or quotation errors. It enables you to detect problems and revise your assignment before final submission for marking.
If you would like to check your assignment prior to submitting it, you must create your own Turnitin student account using the Charles Sturt University Class ID and Class Enrolment Password listed in the 'Creating A Turnitin Account' document below. These details and instructions for creating your student account are found in the guide below.
