Once your document has loaded, select the gear icon gearIcon.png from the top right-hand corner of the side panel. 


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

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 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.


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