All submitted papers will be checked for originality of the work submitted, through Turnitin.com. Points will be deducted from the final grade of the paper as the percentage of the overall work that matches to outside sources increases. Turnitin.com marks not only in text content but also citations that can be found in other sources. Matching citations will not be counted against the student, but matching in text content will.
Be sure to use the Writing & Citing tab of this guide for academic writing and citation help.
