Draft Coach available in Google Docs

Do you want to run your paper through Turnitin BEFORE turning it in? Now you can, with Draft Coach! Turnitin Draft Coach™ is a tool within Google Docs to help improve academic writing and researching skills by providing instant feedback. It allows the user to address unintentional plagiarism, improve citation skills, and correct grammar mistakes.

To utilize Draft Coach, login to your UF-email Google account. Within Google Docs, click on “Extensions” at the top next to Help, and choose Turnitin Draft Coach™. A panel will appear on the right, giving you options to run a Similarity Check, a Citation Check, or the Grammar Guide. Please note: Similarity Check only allows up to 3 reviews per paper.

You can access your UF Google account directly at UF’s G Suite site or via the Draft Coach page.
