There is no acceptable percentage.

The percentage of original writing will vary depending on the type of writing and the subject area involved. It is important to use your own academic judgment in each individual piece of work. In order to avoid any possibility of plagiarism, ensure that you write original work in each assignment you submit. Ask yourself: 

  • Have I written an original piece of work?
  • Have I clearly acknowledged all of my sources?
  • Are my sources in my reference list?
  • Has any work in this assignment already been submitted to Turnitin?

Turnitin will text match against:

  • Correctly cited quotations
  • Bibliography items / reference lists
  • Cover sheets
  • Jargon or terminology that is commonly used

This is normal and will be taken into account.
