Improvements to Turnitin database – more peer review journals added

Filed under: Blackboard, turnitin — Tags: — jobadge @ 10:52 am

iParadigms have been working with CrossRef to provide a service to academic publishers to help verify the originality of academic content. Originally piloted last year and now fully adopted, the service provided to publishers will be called CrossCheck (based on iThenticate, TII’s not student/class based sister product).

The content which is already part of the iThenticate database will become part of TII in June this year. Currently CrossCheck has the following members that have provided content;

* Association for Computing Machinery
* BMJ Publishing Group Ltd.
* Elsevier
* Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
* IUCr
* The New England Journal of Medicine
* Taylor & Francis and
* Wiley-Blackwell

However as CrossRef have 500+ members it is expected that this list will grow rapidly (from Will Murray, Northumbria Learning)


  1. Good news?

  2. yes I think it is good news – not as good as JISC collections doing something for them… but publishers are notoriously slow on the uptake
