Our Software Services


Turnitin is an Internet-based similarity detection service run by the American company Turnitin, LLC, a subsidiary of Advance Publications. The Turnitin software checks for potentially unoriginal content by comparing submitted papers to several databases using a proprietary algorithm. It scans its own databases and also has licensing agreements with large academic proprietary databases.

In line with this, The TLRC, in collaboration with the UPV University Library, offers plagiarism checking services for UPV constituents. Clients can submit researches, essays, and other academic papers and TLRC will run the document through a plagiarism tool that the UPV Library granted TLRC access to.
