How can I access iThenticate?
iThenticate is a cloud-based anti-plagiarism software available to faculty and graduate students to check papers, theses, grant proposals, books, etc. Undergraduate students should use SafeAssign (part of Blackboard) to check undergraduate papers.
Each college has its own domain and at least one administrator in iThenticate. Administrators manually create accounts for faculty members in the college. Graduate students can get access to iThenticate from their prospective thesis coordinator or appropriate department administrator. At this time, iThenticate does not have a way to integrate into the campus-provided NetID and password system. While your account will have NetID@uic.edu as your username, you will be asked to set up a password upon first login. Once a college administrator creates an account for you, you will receive an email to activate your account.
- Contact your college-level administrators to request access. A list of administrators is here: Who is my college iThenticate administrator?
- Once you get the invitation email, create your account
- The URL to launch the service after having activated your account is ithenticate.com
