Bibliography and quote exclusion definitions
For papers written in English
Turnitin's machine learning algorithm understands what elements of the paper to exclude from a submission and dynamically removes them from the Similarity Report. Users don't need to specify a specific bibliography section of their paper; we'll do that for you!
Beginning and terminating phrases are still used as a fall back in the rare event of our machine-learning algorithm is unavailable at the time of submission. You can resubmit your paper at a later date to take advantage of this advanced exclusion option.
When the document reaches any of the following words in the paper, it will resume the similarity check:
Turnitin will disregard any matches that use the following quotation marks:
Turnitin will not disregard matches using single quotation marks.
Turnitin will exclude quotes within quotes. For example: "This text would be excluded 《so would this text too》 and then this text would also be excluded."
Turnitin will exclude block quotation (an indented block of text) when the original file is a .doc or .docx file.
