When do I get my Turnitin originality / similarity report?

Why does it say pending and when will my originality / similarity report be returned?

For the first 4 submissions you make to a Turnitin Assignment, you should get a similarity report coming through within an hour or so, although it could take up to 24 hours. For any further submissions it will take at least 24 hours to return another similarity report and this could be up to 48 hours in peak periods. Usually, if a report hasn’t been returned yet, it will display as Pending in the Submissions Inbox. If the 'Pending' message displays for longer than expected, try opening your submission, as you may find that the originality report has been generated. This will also refresh the 'Pending' indicator in the submissions inbox.

If the timeframes above have passed and your originality report is still pending, please Contact Us via the details at the top right.
