This workspace is for making appointments for supervision and submitting drafts of theses for comments and the final version for grading. There are also helpful material and links in the Resources section.
The thesis process starts with an initial meeting. The student, supervisor and instructor(s) should all attend the meeting. The meeting agenda is found under Resources.
On submission, a Turnitin similarity report is generated automatically. The report shows similarities between the submitted text and sources in the comparison databases. By exposing similar text, the report supports scientific writing, and it helps prevent unintended or intended plagiarism. Read the Aalto University Turnitin instructions, especially the part on how to interpret a Turnitin similarity report.
The final version of the thesis is submitted to a separate return box, where the similarity report is generated and the paper is archived in Turnitin's student paper repository so as to protect it against plagiarism.
