To reduce the exposure to plagiarism, iThenticate recommends publications and organizations visibly display their use of plagiarism software. By placing an iThenticate logo or "badge" on a website, it lets submitting authors know that screening for plagiarism is a part the editorial process, and may help deter future instances. (Also see Stamp of Originality for researchers and authors.)
