Why does the Scribbr Plagiarism Check regard a source in my reference list as a similarity?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker detect similarities between your paper and the official Turnitin database. Because many students write their references in the same way (for instance in APA Style), Turnitin finds many similarities with these sources.

A reference found by the check is not a form of plagiarism. Therefore, there is no need to take action.
