While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.

You agree that by submitting your assignment for text matching purposes, that your assignment will be included as a source document in the Turnitin  database.  Use of Turnitin is subject to the Turnitin User Agreement.  Should you not agree to these terms, you will not be able to submit your assignment in to Turnitin.  Please contact your lecturer to discuss alternative submission methods within a reasonable time prior to your submission date.
