Plagiarism detection software is now being employed by many journals and publishers, as well as by federal research sponsors. This software compares a grant or manuscript to a large body of published literature, and reports on the similarity between the texts. The similarity comparison may be used to make a determination that the text is either plagiarized or represents poor citation practices, either of which may represent a violation of academic or research integrity standards. CSU is now making plagiarism detection software available to its faculty. This class will present a basic overview of iThenticate, including a hands-on demonstration of how to initiate and interpret similarity searches.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals and Target Audiences: The class is aimed at instructing faculty who plan on submitting manuscripts, dissertations and grant proposals on how to use the iThenticate application.
