Enabling paper source resource

The account settings page allows you to change the default options set at account creation.

  1. To begin customizing your Turnitin account settings, click the Edit icon alongside the account you wish to edit.
  2. Select Edit account settings.


Don't forget to click the Submit button at the bottom of the page to save any changes you make to the account!

Use the drop-down menu to enable or disable source release. The paper source release account option, when enabled for an account, allows the account’s instructors to view student paper sources within similarity reports for papers that were submitted to a class existing within the account. This means that instructors will not have to request permission from the student’s instructor to view papers submitted within the account. If an account contains sub-accounts, the sub-accounts are set by default to inherit the paper source release setting from the main account.

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.
