Abstract

Plagiarism has been a serious concern in Indonesia especially those of Islamic Universities where the regulation has not been settled. This study examines student’s awareness of plagiarism issue before and after the implementation of Turnitin showing the similarity index of their papers. The technique of data collection employed in this study covers documentation on student’s similarity index and field notes from focus group discussion in three departments at an Islamic State University in Malang. It involves English Letters department, Arabic Language Teaching department and Syariah Business and Law department. The analysis shows that discussing plagiarism is inseparable from the cultural interference and perspective of the students; as well as the understanding on the legal bases on plagiarism. The use of online similarity check is effective to improve the student’s awareness to avoid plagiarism. The implication of this study further goes to the need of establishing a more explicit regulation on how to handle and avoid plagiarism in Islamic Universities under Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affair.
