All matching papers from Western Sydney University are retrievable. To access:

  • Once a match is found, click on the highlighted text, and a pop-up box will appear
  • Click on the "Submitted to [Western Sydney University]" blue link in the pop-up box
  • The source release dialog box will open with text similar to the following: "The Original Copy of this paper cannot be viewed because it was not submitted to your class. The paper was submitted to instructor [Name of Instructor] in Class [Name of Class] on [Date of Submission]"
  • Click on the "Download Original" button.

Additionally, to minimise self-plagiarism instances, review matches via the ‘Match Breakdown' panel, as student matches are shown as an accumulation.  If there is a high match from one paper, it may indicate self-plagiarism rather than deliberate instance of plagiarism.



Please note the following limitations:

  • The name of the student is not automatically included in the message, but may be on the submitted paper
