From September 2011, the School has subscribed to Turnitin, jointly with the University of Hong Kong. It is a School policy that Turnitin should be available to teachers for checking students' work.
Turnitin is a software system service that allows teachers and students to perform originality checking on their works to ensure proper citation and avoid potential plagiarism. Turnitin maintains a very large text and document repository, which consists of current and archived web pages, student papers, collections of newspapers and magazines, academic journals as well as electronic books and texts etc. It is widely used by many academic institutions worldwide.
