We administer the University’s license for iThenticate, a web-based “professional plagiarism prevention” application that compares scholarly publications against a massive and continuously growing database of web pages, journals, periodicals, magazines, encyclopedias and abstracts.

Leading journals, publishers and funding agencies routinely use iThenticate to check submissions before the review process begins. KAUST faculty members may check their papers and proposals prior to submission by setting up a user account through our office.
