Ouriginal is an online text-matching tool used by the University of Canberra. It analyses the text of submitted work and matches it against sources from the Internet, published works, and previously submitted student texts. It is a tool that assists in the early detection of plagiarism.

Not all units will have Ouriginal enabled.

If Ouriginal is enabled in your unit, you can submit your assignment and the your unit Lecturer/Convener will receive a report providing a percentage of matching text in your assignment. The Lecturer/Convener decides if the report is made available to the student.

Text-matching reports can be received for assignments draft through the Ouriginal Draft submission drop box in the Academic Integrity and Referencing block of the Study Help site.
