Intro to iThenticate Workshops Announced
The Office of Research and Engagement announces five one-time training workshops that will serve as an introduction to iThenticate, a plagiarism checker software that verifies the originality of written work.
We will discuss how to submit papers, the format of those papers, setting exclusions for the report, reading the report, and protocols on sharing that information with colleagues. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to use iThenticate, what iThenticate is used for, and how to read the iThenticate report.
Attendees can bring a laptop and a digital example paper to follow along, but it is not required.
Workshops are limited to 40 attendees. All workshops will be in A004 Blount Hall. Zoom information is provided in the registration links below for those who cannot attend in person.
Please contact Donna Ford (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
RCR Tip: Plagiarism and iThenticate
Ethical research and scholarly publication is predicated on the notion of original thought, ideas, questions, and answers. Plagiarism is the most prevalent form of research misconduct and is the single most commonly reported violation at institutions nationwide. Proper citation to original source material is essential, even if the source is the author’s own previous work. Self-plagiarism (also referred to as text recycling) occurs when an individual reuses significant, identical, or nearly identical portions of his or her own work without acknowledging that he/she is doing so and citing the original work.
