Development of a culture of academic integrity at the Department of accounting and auditing

Students of higher education and teachers of the department of accounting and auditing from FR II THCHE joined the OPTIMA project and took part in a survey on the level of academic integrity and open science.

The purpose of the study was to clarify the attitude of Ukrainian students and the academic community to the values ​​of academic integrity and open scientific practices, as well as to identify typical examples of dishonest behavior in Ukrainian institutions of higher education.

The survey was anonymous and the answers to the questions were based on the respondents’ own experience.  Many questions were related to the publication ethics of scientists, the protection of intellectual property rights, and the need to publish research results. Participation in such projects provides an opportunity to develop academic ethics and a culture of academic integrity among students of higher education, as well as scientific and pedagogical staff.
