iThenticate

Lingnan has subscribed for a three-year subscription to iThenticate software for detection of plagiarism for academics staff only.  Turnitin and iThenticate are both provided by Turnitin LLC, but they are designed for different categories of users. 

Turnitin is course management based in Moodle and requires instructors to set up classes and assignments.  

iThenticate is designed to be used by researchers to screen written work for originality.  This service allows researchers to easily upload and scan documents, manuscripts, research and other professional works into iThenticate.
