Welcome to iThenticate and Crossref Similarity Check guides

Welcome to iThenticate’s new website for guidance.

In 2024 we migrated our comprehensive library of iThenticate and Crossref Similarity Check guidance from to this new site,

What's new?

iThenticate guidance now has its own dedicated area for help content

Previously, iThenticate and Crossref users would go to to get their help content. This site contained content for many of Turnitin's products. We decided that it would be a better user experience for our iThenticate and Crossref users if they had their own dedicated guidance site. 

No more duplicated content
Previously, we had separate sections for Crossref Similarity Check and iThenticate 2.0. This is no longer the case. Crossref Similarity Check is built on the same platform as iThenticate 2.0 and shares the same features and functionality. To make the user experience clearer, Crossref Similarity Check and iThenticate 2.0 guidance will be the same. If there are every areas in our guides where the two products diverge, these guides will contain clear direction to help our users understand the differences.

In a similar vein, for iThenticate 1.0, we will no longer have separate guidance for Individual and Organisational accounts. The differences between these two account types will contain clear direction from within the guides to help our users.

Our guidance search has greatly improved
As a result of creating a dedicated area for iThenticate and Crossref guides and removing duplicated content, our search functionality has greatly improved. Use the search bar at the top of any page to locate the guidance you’re searching for.
