Academic dishonesty such as plagiarism refers to cheating and presenting other’s creation as one’s original work. As a number of technologies especially the use of smartphones and the Internet to gather information has been increasing significantly, plagiarism should be considered an intellectual violation. Whether or not students copy and paste consciously, it is institutional responsibility to introduce guidance on what will or may be identified as plagiarism, to give long-term guidance on writing practices, and to apply transparent penalty systems consistently. This study focuses on identifying students’ behavior towards plagiarism, identifying types of plagiarism, and analyzing possible solutions to ameliorate academic dishonesty.

Keywords: plagiarism, behavior, academic dishonesty
