Abstract

Plagiarism is stealing others’ ideas, methods, results or written works as well as using another’s production without crediting the source. This study intends to assess the pre faculty and faculty members’ awareness, attitude and performance about plagiarism in their writings or findings at Hormozgan University of Medical sciences (HUMS). In this regard, a questionnaire containing 12 questions was designed to assess the awareness, attitude and performance of 65 faculty members and 80 pre faculty of HUMS. The findings from the faculty members’ questionnaire analysis were statistically different from that of the pre faculty members`, regarding the use of a quotation mark when referring to others’ statements, original articles, websites and books, applying one’s teacher’s or peer’s comments under their own name, using photos or images taken from previously written articles by the same author (P<0.5). The results indicated that the faculty members had a better awareness, attitude and performance toward following the principles of plagiarism as they carry out researches more often. To overcome the weak points in this regard, it is essential to hold up educational workshops for the pre faculty as well as the faculty members to promote their awareness, attitude and performance toward plagiarism
