Plagiarism Detection & Prevention
Ithenticate is the leading provider of professional plagiarism detection and prevention technology used worldwide by scholarly publishers and research institutions to ensure the originality of written work before publication. This is an online web-based system that can be used by researchers at the University of Cape Town. Turnitin is used by all registered students at the UCT. Both have an easy-to-use submission process that checks for similarity against the world’s top published works. Researchers and institutions can feel confident that their academic reputation will be protected.
