Exclude previously submitted works or earlier versions of your manuscript to reduce the similarity index.
Step 1: Access your similarity report (simreport) via AnimoSpace
Step 2: Click the [Gear Icon] beside [Sources Overview]
Step 3: Under [Exclude Search Repositories], tick [Submitted Works]
There's an option to exclude other search repositories, bibliography, quotes, and citations as well.
You should notice a change/reduction in your similarity index as soon as you click [Done].
- Getting a high similarity index is often due to previously submitted works that were not deleted from Turnitin's database. To request the deletion of previously submitted works, you may refer to this FAQ.
