Excluding search repositories

Table of contents
No headers

You are able to exclude entire repositories from appearing in a Similarity Report. The repositories you have available to you are determined by the administrator for your organization.

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

Using the checkboxes, choose the repositories that you'd like your submitted documents to not match against.
  Internet

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

 

  Publications

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 account 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 repository. However, some accounts are also set up with a private group or global repository. Speak to your account administrator if you require clarification.

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