iThenticate v1 or iThenticate v2?

There are now two versions of iThenticate available. Most subscribers are on v1, and the instruction on this website explain how to set up and use v1. Some new subscribers can start using v2 from September 2021 - we’ll let new subscribers know if v2 is appropriate for them when they apply. You can find out more about iThenticate v2 on our blog.

To work out which version you’re on, take a look at the website address that you use to access iThenticate. If you go to ithenticate.com then you are using v1. If you a bespoke URL, https://crossref-[your member ID].turnitin.com/ then you are using v2.
