  WarningTriangle_Red.png

Turnitin does not exclude 'quotes' between "quotes". For example: "This text would be excluded 'but this text would not be excluded' then this text would also be excluded."

Block quotations

 

Turnitin will exclude block quotation (an indented block of text) when the original file is a .doc or .docx file.
