Dear Colleagues

During the past week, a webinar was presented on similarity check (plagiarism detection tools) and the use of iThenticate specifically, within scholarly journals and when publishing a scholarly journal article. It is recommended that Turnitin is used for theses/dissertations. Please note that the preferred word is similarity check, and not plagiarism check.

You are most welcome to view the recording<http://webinar.assaf.org.za/playback/presentation/0.9.0/playback.html?meetingId=7fd23cee9887ecc0abc5d88bc26065d0b18bb922-1470903973405> or view the slides on iThenticate & Crossref Similarity Check by Shivendra Naidoo<http://www.slideshare.net/ASSAf_Official/safeguarding-research-in-south-africa-ithenticate-and-crossref-similarity-check> or the slides on using iThenticate & Crossref Similarity Check with ScholarOne (South African Journal of Science)<http://www.slideshare.net/ASSAf_Official/the-south-african-journal-of-science-ithenticate> and with Open Journal Systems (OJS) by Nadine Wubbeling. Also share with others who might be interested to learn more.
