What do the Originality Report percentages mean?

The overall Originality Report percentage does not mean very much unless it is very large (>45-50%). What is more important are the individual percentages along the side of your paper. Anything much larger than 2-3% means TurnItIn has found a source that matches your content almost word for word. You should check each of these and determine whether you need to quote the material and provide accurate sources for what you have written.
