Ensuring Bibilographic material is excluded in submissions to Turnitin

To ensure that Bibliographic material is excluded when this option is selected in Turnitin the students will need to add one of the following headings above their references:

  • Bibliography
  • References
  • Referenced Works

This heading must be by itself on a new line in the document. The heading must not be followed by an item of punctuation, for example¬† ‘Bibliography:-‘¬† will stop Turnitin from being able to recognise the heading correctly and therefore the matches in the reference materials will be included in the originality report score.
