All about Turnitin

Turnitin is a text-matching software that checks a student’s written work against electronic texts from the Internet, published works (such as journal articles and books), and assignments previously submitted to Turnitin by other students.

Turnitin is provided by an external company. Monash University staff and students are licensed to use the service however you, as the end-user of the service, are required to confirm that you agree to the terms set out in the End User Licence Agreement (EULA). If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must agree to the EULA. You only need to do this once, and should only see the agreement the first time you access Turnitin.
