Plagiarism Detection Service

Plagiarism Detection Service

This service has the aim of protecting the academic integrity of the university and its members, to encourage independent thinking and innovation, and avoid any academic misconduct, especially plagiarism, which is prohibited by M.U.S.T. All graduate students' dissertations must pass the Plagiarism Detection before the oral defense.

The Library strongly recommends the applicant do not provide his/her thesis to others for plagiarism detection. It may risk leaking their thesis content and plagiarism misjudgment.

(A) Papers in English: Turnitin;

(B) Papers in Chinese: CNKI Academic Paper Detection System;

-The plagiarism report will be sent to the applicant’s email in 3 working days. We do not provide urgent service for maintaining the fairness and justice. Therefore, we suggest that you submit your papers to be tested 3 working days in advance.
