Sample Syllabus Statement for Faculty:

In this course, the primary purpose of Turnitin is to serve as a plagiarism and self-plagiarism avoidance tool for students. Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are examples of academic dishonesty (see Academic Honesty section of this syllabus). According to Turnitin (2016), “papers submitted to Turnitin may be compared against billions of internet documents, archived internet data that is no longer available on the live web, a local repository of previously submitted papers, and subscription repository of periodicals, journals, and publications” (para. 1).
