Managing Folders

  2. Enter a name for the folder group.
  3. Click the “Create” button to create the new folder group.

To create new folders:

  4. Select to enable the following exclusion options for every document uploaded to the folder:
    1. Exclude Quotes
    2. Exclude Bibliography
    3. Exclude Phrases
    4. Exclude Small Matches
    5. Exclude Small Sources
    6. Exclude Sections (Abstract or Methods and Materials)
  5. Select the search repositories the folder documents should be searched against when generating the Originality Reports from the “Limit searches to these repositories” option:
    1. CrossCheck
    2. Internet
    3. Publications
    4. There may be additional search options available in iThenticate accounts such as ProQuest or a private repository.
  6. Click on the Create button to create the folder.

Folder settings may be updated at any time. If reports exist in a folder before the folder’s settings are updated the generated reports will not be affected by the new folder settings.
