Checking non-student work using Turnitin
Our NUI Galway Turnitin licence is strictly limited to checking student work. The company that provides Turnitin also has a separate product for academics and researchers, called iThenticate http://www.ithenticate.com/. This would, however, require a separate licence. At the moment, there is no central licence for iThenticate for staff or researchers
The licence that NUI Galway currently holds for Turnitin should not be used to check the originality of ones own work prior to journal submission nor should it be used to review journal articles.
