Crossref Similarity Check registration form

Thank you for choosing to submit an application for a Crossref Similarity Check account. Once your application has been approved by Crossref, your account will be created by the vendor (Turnitin LLC) within 10 working days.

Please note:

The service is only available to eligible Crossref members, and can only be used for checking the originality of documents as part of the Crossref member’s normal publication process.

The service must NOT be used for checking student papers, dissertations or theses, or any material which might be published without having a Crossref DOI assigned to it. Furthermore, passwords/accounts should not be shared with unauthorised personnel. The Account Administrator and/or Crossref member organisation will be held responsible for any violations of these Terms, which could result in the member’s access to the service being suspended.

To confirm your eligibility for a Crossref Similarity Check account, please read the following statements carefully and check the boxes to confirm you meet the criteria. You will then need to supply the details of three key contacts at your organisation, and sign and return a standard Service Agreement before your application can be approved and your account created.





Thank you for confirming your eligibility. Please proceed to the next page to submit the contact details for your chosen Account Administrator.
