Excluding an individual source
Sometimes, you may notice that a source is included in the Similarity Report that you didn't intend, or there may be a source you think was permissible, and don't want it to contribute to the overall similarity score.
When you are viewing a similarity report, from the sources sidebar, choose a source view.
Top sources: A list of the top sources found in the document
All Sources: A list of all sources that have matched in the document.
Excluding from either of these views will also exclude it from the other view
- Hover over the source you would like to exclude. An eye icon with a strike through it will appear.
Select this icon to exclude this source.
- You're all done! The similarity score will be updated to reflect the exclusion you have just made.

Excluding a sub-domain will only remove the match from that level of the domain. If there are multiple matches, from different parts of a single domain, they will be treated differently.
For example: help.turnitin.com would be a different source to example.turnitin.com
