TurnItIn

UWF maintains a university license agreement for an online text matching service called
TurnItIn.


At my discretion, I will use the TurnItIn service to determine the originality of stude
nt
papers.


If I submit your paper to TurnItIn, it will be stored in a TurnItIn database for as long as
the service remains in existence.


If you object to this storage of your paper:

1.

You must let me know no later than two weeks after the start of this cla
ss.


2.

I will utilize other services and techniques to evaluate your work for evidence of
appropriate authorship practices.
