Screening for duplicate text in PhD thesis

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences screens all PhD theses for duplicate text immediately after submission and prior to forwarding to assessment committees. If no duplicate text is identified, the screening takes a maximum of seven days. The Royal Library conducts the screening using the detection software iThenticate. It is not possible for PhD students to conduct this screening in advance.
