NIH authors, rest easier knowing that all of your manuscript’s sources are cited. Before submitting to a journal, use the NIH Library’s Plagiarism Checking Service to help identify any missed citations or paraphrased wording too similar to a published source.
Upon request, an editor will analyze your unpublished journal article manuscript using the Library’s licensed iThenticate software and send you the report. You can then correct any missing citations before the manuscript is sent through the NIH approval process.
The service is free and confidential. Requesters must be the first, last, or corresponding author of the NIH work-related, unpublished manuscript. Reports are usually delivered within three business days.

To request an iThenticate report, use the Editing Request form available in the Services section of the NIH Library website.
