Title: Plagiarism and iThenticate plagiarism detection software
Plagiarism is a serious issue that all authors needs to be aware of, whether it’s posters, journal articles, conference proceedings, or proposals. This presentation will help you understand what plagiarism is, the professional consequences that come with it, and how it can happen unintentionally (e.g. “self plagiarism”).
The university has licensed software called iThenticate that can help you screen your writing for unintended plagiarism. Librarians, Diana Perpich and Paul Grochowski, will show you how to access it and how to use it to protect yourself by screening your writing prior to submission.
