Catholic University of Ghana Enhances Academic Integrity with Successful Turnitin Workshop

  • March 23, 2024   Category: Education

Fiapre-Sunyani, Ghana – In a recent landmark initiative, the Catholic University of Ghana has reinforced its dedication to academic honesty and integrity.

On March 23, 2024, the School of Graduate Studies hosted a pivotal workshop aimed at equipping postgraduate students with the tools to ensure the originality of their scholarly work.

Under the auspices of Fr. Prof. Peter N. Amponsah, the Pro Vice-Chancellor, the virtual workshop brought clarity to the use of Turnitin, a leading software in detecting potential plagiarism.

This workshop, integral to the university's zero-tolerance policy against academic misconduct, was met with enthusiasm and high participation from the student body.

The successful workshop covered key areas including the interpretation of Turnitin reports, understanding the nuances of similarity indexes, and best practices for maintaining the sanctity of academic work. Students were given comprehensive guidance on the registration process, usage of the software, and the importance of self-checks before final submissions.

Recognizing the challenges and confusion surrounding plagiarism and self-plagiarism, the Catholic University of Ghana has taken these strides not only to address the issue head-on but also to educate its academic community. The university's stringent stance mandates that any academic work with a plagiarism score above 20% is automatically rejected, thereby upholding the highest standards of originality and scholarly conduct.

Moreover, the university has implemented a system where each student is granted three opportunities to self-check their theses or dissertations.

Should further checks be necessary, reactivation by the Turnitin Instructor is available, ensuring continuous support for students as they navigate through their academic journey.

The steps for registering and payment of a modest fee for the Turnitin service, are available through the university's dedicated registration link.

The Catholic University of Ghana urges all graduate students who missed the workshop to contact the Turnitin Instructor for assistance and access to workshop materials. It is essential for students to complete the mandatory Turnitin registration and familiarize themselves with the process of submitting and reviewing papers through this system.

As part of its ongoing efforts to maintain academic excellence, the university plans to host additional workshops and provide resources that support students' academic achievements and integrity.

For more information on the Turnitin registration process and upcoming workshops, students are encouraged to visit the Catholic University of Ghana’s official channels or contact the Turnitin Instructor directly.
