When you have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your name and assignment title (Example: Doe_J_Ethical_Minute_Paper). Submit your paper via the Turnitin draft. Wait until the link indicates that Turnitin has analyzed your paper and prepared a report. Once the report has generated, go back to the report and evaluate it. You will notice that Turnitin often matches on headings, titles, and references. If you see matches on entire sentences or paragraphs that are not enclosed in quotation marks, then you have unintentionally plagiarized. You will need to go back and re-write those sections in your own words.


Submit the final paper using the second Turnitin link. If the final paper you submit contains entire sentences or paragraphs that have a high similarity index to other sources, it may indicate either unintentional or intentional plagiarism. You may be contacted by your instructor.
