The University of Nairobi has acquired anti-plagiarism software –turnItIn. This is one if not the best anti plagiarism software that is used by many institutions of higher learning across the globe.

The software is able to detect and highlight any similarity in the paper.  The similarity rate shows the percentage of matching text, as well as sources for the text that was used in the student's paper.

The student’s projects will be submitted to the turntitin website which will then be compared against strings of text in the huge database.  The paper will be checked against Over 150 million student papers nearly forty billion pages, over 90,000 journals, periodicals, books, and electronic textbooks and many more parameters

The software will help minimize the risk of submitting plagiarized work and also help in promoting academic integrity. Further, the software will go a long way in helping students to familiarize themselves with proper citation and reference of sources. 

The software will also help in protecting students from unauthorized use of their work by protecting their intellectual property. It will also give students the opportunity to analyze their work for any potential plagiarism or integrity issues, and can correct any citation errors.

The ICT team and Library Department has been tasked with the job of training all the relevant stakeholders on how to use the TunItIn software
