Because it was created for publishers to monitor copyright infringement, unlike TurnItIn, documents uploaded to iThenticate are not added to a database for future searches. One further point of clarification. Neither iThenticate , nor any other software, can detect plagiarism per se. What they can detect is text in an uploaded document which is identical or nearly identical to text in the previously published literature accessed by iThenticate for comparison. Text in an uploaded document that is identical or nearly identical to text in the previously published literature does not always represent plagiarism.

Particularly in scientific and other technical literature, there may be only very limited ways to express a concept or method. Purdue is only able to grant user accounts under its license to faculty on the West Lafayette campus and Graduate Faculty on other Purdue system campuses.
