You can select the Turnitin search repositories that users can choose to compare their submission against. Change your search targets by selecting the different checkboxes. Your selections will adjust the available search repositories in your users' account settings:


Turnitin's 'web crawler' actively archives websites and holds over 62 billion current and removed pages in our database. 



Turnitin partners with leading content publishers to create a robust collection of over 160 million articles from library databases, textbook publishers, digital reference collections, subscription-based publications, homework helper sites, and books.


Submitted Works

This is an umbrella term for all items previously submitted to any of the repositories that an account has been set up with. There are three submitted works repositories available to Originality Check accounts:

  • Private institutional repository
  • Private group repository (e.g. country, consortium, or a specifically requested group)
  • Global repository


By default, all accounts are set up with their own private institutional repository. However, some accounts are also set up with a private group or global repository. As an administrator, you must request this through your account manager.


For administrators, any Submitted Works repositories will be listed (as pictured above).


If everything looks good, hit the Save button to apply your changes.
