iThenticate (https://www.ithenticate.com/) is a text similarity checking tool that compares documents (including journal article manuscripts, proposals, research reports, thesis, and dissertations, etc.) against millions of published works, subscription databases, and web pages.
Caltech licenses iThenticate for use by Faculty, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students to use as a self-check on manuscript quality before submission.
Eligible users may access iThenticate from Caltech Access site - look for the link under Academic Services. ⇒ Important note: Caltech's IMSS manages campus access to Ithenticate.
Usage Policy: Account holders are granted access in order to upload and perform text analysis on one's OWN DOCUMENTS ONLY.
