The ability to evaluate the reliability of an online news source will help ensure the integrity of research and academic writing.

The NewsGuard app, developed by a Wadham College alumnus, provides students and teaching staff at Oxford with a tool to analyse online journalistic sources.

NewsGuard is a Turnitin partner and our university-wide licence for Turnitin enables all members of the University to make use of this app.

After you have downloaded and installed the NewsGuard app, you will need to email the University’s Turnitin support desk and request an access code which will ensure continued free use as part of Oxford’s paid-for Turnitin licence. Please see details in this blog post.
