Excluding content from the Similarity Report

Table of contents
No headers

Content exclusions can include removing any matches to the bibliography or any places within a document where the author has used quotes.



Changing your settings will only change the setting for future uploads. If required, previously uploaded documents will need to be individually adjusted. 



Select Settings from the sidebar.


Using the checkboxes, select the content types you would like to exclude from all future documents:

Originality Check looks for header phrases associated with terminology relating to a bibliography and excludes any material following it from the Similarity Report. Originality Check then looks for a terminating header to resume the similarity check. A full list of beginning and terminating phrases can be found here.



Originality Check looks for all content between quotation marks and excludes this text from the report. A list of supported quotation mark types can be found here.


  Small Matches - # Words Originality Check will remove all matches that are less than or equal to the length of the number of words supplied.


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