The School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) will now utilize software to check for plagiarism in theses and dissertations submitted to the SGSR. Plagiarism is defined in the IUP Academic Integrity Policy in section II.A.3.
On February 26, 2013, the IUP Senate approved SGSR implementation of iThenticate plagiarism detection software. iThenticate can accept large documents, and it does not add your work to its searchable databases. The Q&A below should help you understand how iThenticate is being implemented at IUP. If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
