you must bear in mind that the PhD students to whom you direct the thesis must obtain the similarity detection report before starting the online deposit of their thesis. The student must manage this report before recording the online application for their thesis and will have to attach the report obtained from Turnitin, on the percentage of similarities, as an attached document in the online deposit. As a thesis supervisor, you must evaluate it and indicate and justify the similarities detected, if any, in your report as supervisor.
