I’m a PhD student in PolyU. I wonder if the library can provide a similarity check software, such as Turnitin, for us to check my thesis / paper before submission?

The Library does not provide similarity checking tools, but PolyU ITS does subscribe to Turnitin and VeriGuide for PolyU staff and students to check plagiarism. Turnitin is for students to check similarity of their assignment, while VeriGuide is for academic staff to check similarity of their research papers or grants applications.  


Please consult your supervisor for help if you need to use these similarity checking tools to check your thesis or paper.
