Urkund - Supporting Academic Integrity

As part of our approach towards enhancing academic integrity Loop incorporates the use of "Ouriginal", DCU's text matching service . Every assignment that students submit is automatically tested by our "text matching" system. This system searches the internet and checks if the text that you have used is available anywhere on the internet. While using content from the internet is acceptable on occasion, you must ensure that you reference this content appropriately.


The similarity report produced on each report is available within Loop. To Log into Ouriginal directly please visit this link and choose "Dublin City University" from the list of institutions, and then the "single sign on" button.
