SafeAssign is a student submissions originality checker provided by Blackboard which helps identify plagiarism by detecting unoriginal content in student submissions. It does so by comparing student submissions to a range of internet resources, articles and other students’ submissions. In addition to acting as a plagiarism deterrent, this can help students learn about plagiarism and the importance of proper attribution of any borrowed content.

Further advice and one to one support on plagiarism can be found on the Library Study Skills Plagiarism webpage. Please also see the Library’s Study Skills guidance on Referencing.
