FAQs about Turnitin:

How can I check similarity for my thesis in Turnitin?

You may check the similarity rate for your thesis in Turnitin, but you will need to seek your supervisor's help to create a Turnitin assignment for you.

How can I check similarity for my journal article in Turnitin?

Turnitin is mainly for checking student assignments. To check journal articles, VeriGuide will be a better choice since it covers scholarly journal articles and free internet resources. Since VeriGuide is limited to PolyU academic staff only, please seek your supervisor's help to have your article (most likely co-authored with your supervisor) checked on VeriGuide. Alternatively, you may also subscribe iThenticate and check your work there.
