Upon request, the Pardee Legal Research Center offers training for students on Using Research Effectively: Academic Integrity vs. Plagiarism.
The LRC can also assist in locating potential sources of plagiarized text in student papers through the use of text-matching software.
Note: The text-matching software Turnitin compares submitted drafts to its database of scholarly research (journal articles, student papers, and other internet sources) and returns a Similarity Report that highlights a percentage of matching text.
Turnitin does not automatically detect plagiarism. It is up to the student or professor to interpret the meaning of the Similarity Report.
