VeriCite staff have added a new option that allows an instructor to set whether a report will include or ignore self plagiarism within the same course. To reduce the number of false matches, we recommend excluding self plagiarism in the same course by default. Instructors will still retain the ability to toggle the option for each individual report after submission. Self plagiarism will always be checked against the user’s reports in other courses. You can find this option in the “report options” section while creating a new assignment or in the “details” section while viewing a report.
