What is Turnitin?
Turnitin is text matching, electronic submission and feedback software. It is used in the University of Sheffield for Originality checking and as part of something called Electronic Management of Assessment (EMA).
Turnitin allows you to submit your work electronically. You can submit from any desktop or laptop computer whether on or off campus. The software can then look to see if text in the submission has any matches to text, both online and in its extensive essay bank.
Please see below for instructions on how to submit your work and don't forget - on completion of submission you will then see a page saying ‘Congratulations – your submission is complete! You should now receive an email digital receipt in your University Account Gmail inbox.
Please check that you have this, the digital receipt is your proof of submission!
