  • My file showed above 30% quotation%.

    It was APA 6th citation format.I used endnote and at few places endnote used this format (Li Ye al.,2000 #96).

    But at other places it didn’t have any #number format.

    I am struggling to find the reason behind it?

    will turnitin consider #number format as quotation without exclamation mark?

    • Gill Rowell thanks for replying.

      i checked my document.

      I didn’t use single exclamation mark or any other punctuation marks.

      i am not sure why turnitin detected 28% quotation.

      however as I mentioned I used endnote for the references.And temporary reference mode of endnote is like quotation (author year # page number).

      I had that formatting at many places. 

      I will appreciate any feedback or support from people who encountered this issue.
