Allow instructors to view the full text of matches

  2. Select Edit account settings.

You are able to determine how paper view requests are processed within your institution. When a paper that has been submitted to your institution matches against a paper at another institution, the instructor can ask to view the matching paper. An email will be sent with this request along with next steps you can take should you wish to share the paper.

If the paper is a match to another paper submitted to a different instructor's class (also at your institution), you can automatically allow them to have access to that originally submitted paper.

Set the Allow instructors within your institution to view full text of submissions to Enabled.

For external requests, you can either allow the instructor of the original assignment to receive requests directly or specify an email address that all paper view requests will be automatically routed to. 

We recommend assigning an email address that multiple people have access to, such as a shared inbox. For more information about paper view requests, follow this link.

Instructors can only view paper sources within their institution’s account and do not have the ability to view paper sources for another institution’s account within a multi-campus level account.
