If the file only contains text, it must be less than 2MB.

Turnitin will accept any file where the text can be checked for similarity:

  • that is less than 100MB;
  • that has a minimum of 20 words; and
  • that is less than 800 pages.

If your file exceeds this limit you may remove the images or save the file as a rich text or plain text file to make the file smaller.

You can further compress a PDF to a reduced size format using the Adobe online tool.
