The PSU Graduate School held several workshops for academics and graduate students on using Turnitin, an anti-plagiarism application, from September 7-8, 2017 at the Computer Training Room, 3rd Floor, Khunying Long Learning Resources Center, Hat Yai Campus.
The objectives were to ensure that theses and publications meet the expected quality and reliability standards. Students must maintain proper ethical standards in their research and must not copy work from other people, as well as their own work without proper citation.
The workshops provided academic staff and students with knowledge and hands-on training on how to use the Turnitin program, enabling participants to check manuscripts and dissertations for signs of plagiarism using a global database of academic publications.
The workshops received a high level of interest from both academics and graduate students, gathering over 200 participants.
