EG5911R Information Literacy Skills for Research (Engineering): Plagiarism Prevention


Plagiarism is copying someone else's work and submitting it as your own. This includes wholesale copying from websites, reports, books, assignments taken from other students including your seniors, etc.

To know more about plagiarism, refer to:

iThenticate & Turnitin

NUS provides two plagiarism prevention services, i.e. Turnitin and iThenticate.  Each serves a different group of users.

(i) iThenticate is for postgraduate students and academic staff/researchers to check their own work
(ii) Turnitin is for instructors to check students' work in a classroom setting
