This is the workspace through which drafts of theses or dissertations are submitted for comments and the final version for grading. On submitting in a draft submission box, the Turnitin similarity report is generated automatically. The report shows similarities between the submitted text and sources in the comparison database. By exposing similar text, the report supports good praactises in scientific writing by showing where the submitted text requires more editing, and so also 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 in a separate submission 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.
