Submitting a Document

Every user account contains a default folder “My documents” which users are able to upload files to. Submissions must be made to a folder. To learn more about creating folders please view the managing submissions with folders training page.

To upload a document

  1. Login to iThenticate.
  2. Click on the “Upload a File” link on the right side of the iThenticate home page.
  3. If the account has a private repository users will be presented with three repository submission options to provide the ability to store the submission within the private repository:
    1. Document Repository & Generate Report (default selection)
    2. Document Repository Only
    3. Generate Report Only
  4. (Optional) Fill out the upload detail fields:
    1. Document title (If no title is entered iThenticate will use the file name as the document title)p

  5. Click on the “Choose File” button and select the file on your computer.
