(14 Dec 2020) Typeset, an integrated platform for writing, collaborating, and publishing research papers has joined hands with Turnitin to become a full-service plagiarism checking resource for writers, researchers, educators, and students. The integration creates an authoring platform for setting up scientific or educational papers, complete with text similarity checks. Typeset made the move to integrate with Turnitin in order to make the writing process easier.
With over 100,000 journal templates, researchers and authors can write papers and articles in the appropriate and expected format—without the need to worry about typesetting and style. Turnitin adds the ability to make sure that the hard work and compiling of research and original thought was supported by a program that monitored academic integrity.
“It has been a true pleasure partnering with Turnitin,” said Mr. SaiKiran Chandha, Founder and CEO of Typeset. “We are especially thankful for Mark Harnor at Turnitin, who helped us through the integration workflow. Typeset has evolved over years as a go-to destination for academic content writing tools alongside aiding researchers for content formatting, as a conversion tool for publishers, and as a dissemination tool for institutional research. We are confident that together with Turnitin, Typeset will continue to make meaningful contributions towards integrity in academic research.”
Typeset has partnered with Turnitin to offer plagiarism checking within its authoring platform to all users at no additional cost. Plagiarism concerns are one of the major reasons an article is rejected in technical screening during the submission/editorial processes. The integration offers a solution to this problem, effectively forming a one-stop-shop to set up and self-monitor the writing process.
The program takes the pressure off the writer, who is trying to bring an idea to a review board. It assists in following best practices and ethics guidelines, so the author or the thesis advisor can concentrate on the theme, message, and discoveries without the unexpected mistake of stepping on someone else’s words.
