iThenticate: Similarity Report
iThenticate is a new internet based service that is available to full time graduate faculty, all doctoral students, and advanced Masters students (those who have completed 15+ graduate credits in your degree program). iThenticate was developed by Turnitin and it allows you to scan your own research, grant proposals, article drafts, professional papers, theses, and dissertations for missed citations and other mistakes that could be characterized as plagiarism, thereby protecting the integrity of your scholarship and your professional reputation.
iThenticate scans against a massive database of documents and files drawn from the Internet, as well as from more than 26,000,000 published research articles, 80 global scientific, technical and medical publishers, more than 1 million abstracts and citations from PubMed; and more than 20,000 scholarly research titles from EBSCOhost and the Gale InfoTrac OneFile. iThenticate is also used by major grant sources such as the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Institute of Mental Health (iThenticate 2015).; thus UNLV researchers can use the same tool that will be used by these and other agencies to help evaluate your work.
