I can't submit my paper to Turnitin?
You may be trying to submit a file in a format which is not accepted by Turnitin. Turnitin will only accept files in the following formats:
- Microsoft Word (DOC and DOCX)
- PowerPoint (PTT)
- Corel WordPerfect
- Adobe PostScript
- Plain text (TXT)
- Rich Text Format (RTF)
- Portable Document Format (PDF)
Note: PDF documents must contain text to be submitted. PDF files containing only images of text will be rejected during the upload attempt. To determine if a document contains actual text, copy and paste a section or all of the text into a plain-text editor such as Microsoft Notepad or Apple TextEdit. If no text is copied over, the selection is not actual text. Also, if a PDF file is saved as a protected file it cannot be submitted to Turnitin. To successfully upload your paper to Turnitin, you will need to remove security settings.
Turnitin does not accept submissions saved in Microsoft Works or AppleWorks format. If you are using either of these programs, please save your paper in RTF (rich text format) or submit your paper by cut and paste.
