عنوان مقاله [English]
the purpose of present research was to determine the relationship between multiple variables (social desirability, mental norms, academic self- efficacy, plagiarism knowledge, purpose, pressure, time management, risk) with the possibility of plagiarism among post- graduate students of Ilam University.
Methodology: the present research is applied in terms of purpose and is survey in terms of research implementation. It is a correlation research in terms of the manner of collecting the required data and the relationship between the variables. The statistical population of the present research includes all post- graduate students of Ilam university.The questionnaire was distributed among them by random sampling and self- developed questionnaires of risk, time management, pressure, objective and policy of APA Johnson (2018), mental norms questionnaire of Montana & Kespzick (2008), Academic self- efficacy questionnaire of Downport & Lan (2006), the possibility of plagiarism questionnaire of Shred et al (2002), plagiarism questionnaire of Yeh (2007). In data analysis, simple correlation coefficient and Structural equation modeling was used in WARP PLS software.
Findings: The results of research showed that excessive pressure on students to do homework beyond their ability, lack of knowledge about plagiarism and plagiarism knowledge, as well as poor time management to do homework on time cause students to turn to this immoral phenomenon. Therefore, university administrators and professors can reduce the prevalence of this phenomenon by holding educational classes on plagiarism and its consequences, increasing students’ self- efficacy, creating a proper culture and also teaching proper time management, and prevent it from being committed.
