Excluding search repositories across all reports

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.

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 SimCheck accounts:
 

  • Private institutional repository
  • Private group repository (e.g. a country or any specifically requested group)

 

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

 

Any Submitted Works repositories that the account has been set  will be listed (as pictured above).

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