Turnitin and iThenticate solutions help reduce time spent investigating and adjudicating misconduct cases and ensure due diligence to prevent academic misconduct before it occurs.

Although best known for plagiarism prevention, Turnitin also includes Online Grading, for fast and easy digital grading (on- and off-line), and Peer Review, for streamlining the peer review process. When used together, the Turnitin tools facilitate rich, meaningful feedback that improves student work, promotes critical thinking, and streamlines the grading of student papers. Because Turnitin is web-based, it integrates with most Learning Management Systems (LMSs).

iThenticate is a faculty-focused solution designed to protect faculty and R1 institutions from costly retractions, potential legal issues, and loss of grant funding.  A number of government and granting agencies utilize iThenticate to clear work as it is submitted to them. These agencies include: NSF, NIH, EPA, US Department of Energy, Centers for Disease Control, RTI International, and US Department of Justice. Designed for academic research and grant writing, iThenticate helps R1 universities address and prevent academic misconduct in faculty publishing, grants, research, graduate programs (theses & dissertations), and journals.

R1 universities often license both Turnitin and iThenticate to address academic integrity from undergraduate freshmen, through graduate students, as well as researching and publishing instructors.
