Urkund

Urkund is an online anti-plagiarism service that helps you check whether your thesis or dissertation contains extracts copied from the internet. Urkund also helps to check the accuracy of references. Please note that Urkund will not be used for theses if they are written in Wihi.

Send your thesis or other written learning assignment to Urkund as an email attachment. Please note that not all written assignments related to your studies will be sent to Urkund. Teaching staff members will always tell you individually if a particular assignment should be sent to Urkund.

Urkund will compare the file sent with material on the internet and its own internal archive and sends a report to the teacher with the results of the comparison. The interpretation of the results of the report is the responsibility of the teaching staff.

Humak’s internal Urkund support address is urkund@humak.fi.

Student’s guide

  1. Your instructor will provide you with the address of your Urkund email inbox. The email address is in the format “firstname.lastname.humak@analyysi.urkund.fi”.
  2. Please send your work to the address you have received as an email attachment. The file should be in the format .doc, .docx or .pdf. The file must not be copy-protected or otherwise protected. If you have been instructed to use a course code, please put it in the email title, first in square brackets: [course code].
  3. After sending the file, you will receive a confirmation email from Urkund. The email will confirm that the file you sent has been received and will provide more detailed information about the Urkund system. You will receive an error message in your email if the file is in a format that Urkund does not accept.
  4. The email you receive from Urkund will contain a link to register the sender’s name. Click on the link and enter your name in the form. Registering your name will facilitate the evaluation process. At the very end of the email, there is a link that you can click on to opt out of having your work used in the future in Urkund’s internal database as a source for plagiarism comparisons.
  5. Urkund will compare the file with the contents of its internal database and with material found on the internet. Urkund’s internal database contains, for example, files, books, and articles previously submitted to Urkund.
  6. Urkund analyses the work within 24 hours and sends an email to the teacher with a report on the file sent. The report will indicate whether Urkund found any similarities with other sources in the file and will allow the teacher to further examine the references etc. of the work.
  7. Once a file has been submitted, it cannot be deleted from Urkund. If you want to send a new version of the file, please send it from the same email address as the original version and use the same file name. If you send a different version of the same document from a different email or with a different filename, the service will compare the files and unnecessarily report the similarity to another document.

You do not need separate login credentials for Urkund. The Urkund service is organized at Humak by the Humak library.
