What is Turnitin?

Turnitin offers Originality Check on students' work for proper citation or potential plagiarism. Once a paper is submitted to Turnitin, it will compare with documents in a continuously updated database consisting of current and archived web pages, millions of student papers worldwide, and collections of newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals, e-Books and e-Texts.

Plagiarism is an academic misconduct.  Please visit the HKU website "What is Plagiarism", where you can gain a better understanding of this concept, its consequences and how to avoid it.  You will also find the policies and regulations as well as a portfolio of learning resources, which includes an online course -- Information Literacy Training: Academic Honesty.
