Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical foundation for understanding why Arab students may choose to plagiarise both on-line and on ground. Moreover, this paper discuss how a utilitarian dimension of computer attitude could justify plagiarism. Plagiarism is regarded as a serious academic offence, although more often than not it results from misunderstanding rather than a deliberate intention to cheat. A pilot study was made to explore the extent of plagiarism amongst students and the reasons why they plagiarise so that we can understand the students' behaviour.
