Referencing and Plagiarism: Turnitin


I'd like to use the Turnitin Draft Checker:

  • BU IT Services provide this useful Guide on Using Turnitin and the Turnitin Draft Checker.
  • You will find a link to your Turnitin draft checker on your Brighspace home page. Click on the Turnitin draft checker link.
  • The Turnitin Draft Checker area in Brightspace should not be used for your completed assignment submission.


I need help with interpreting my Turnitin Draft Checker originality report:

  • You may contact your Faculty Library Team to share your report and receive advice. We offer support via email or we can arrange a one to one meeting. Contact details for your Faculty Library Team can be found in the Library area on Brightspace.


I need to submit my final assignment online using Turnitin, where can I find help?

  • Go to the the Brightspace Help area and read section 'Submitting assignments online'
