The Wits Writing Centre



Turnitin is a system used by academics to assist with plagiarism detection. Wits want its students to be accountable for their own academic progress and to improve the quality of their scholarly work. Plagiarism, which is a failure to acknowledge other peoples work and ideas, undermines this accountability. Technology has made it possible for students to submit their assignments to a system that checks assignments for unoriginal content.
