Concerned About Self-Plagiarism?

The Penn Libraries has recently licensed iThenticate, a plagiarism checking tool intended for faculty and researchers. This companion tool to Turnitin checks materials for both for plagiarism and self-plagiarism and can also be used by graduate students and undergraduate students engaged in high level research at Penn.

iThenticate checks papers against a number of resources including scholarly databases and the internet. The plagiarism reports can also be shared between users in the event of multiple authors contributing to the same paper. For more information on using this tool, please see our documentation.

To request an account or for assistance using this tool, please contact Molly Bonnard, Courseware Services Manager at
