The ‚Textlupe‘: written feedback on your texts (all year) Never risk plagiarism again - Visit the plagiarism consultation hour

The plagiarism consultation - including a Turnitin check - will help those seeking advice from not falling into the plagiarism trap.

In order to safely avoid plagiarism, it is important to know what types of plagiarism exist (copy-and-paste plagiarism, translation plagiarism, structural plagiarism, etc.) and how to properly integrate sources and citations into the text. Advising is designed to help students being uncertain about using sources to avoid unintentional plagiarism. In addition, term papers and theses can be checked once-only using Turnitin antiplagiarism software. The results of the check will be discussed together in the consultation hour.
