Note: Turnitin opens in a pop-up window so you may need to enable your browser to allow pop-ups. The location of how and where to do this varies by browser, but there will be an error/message box in or near the URL bar.

 

Step Seven:

Once in the Turnitin pop-up, any sections highlighted in red indicate that there is a similarity match.
