Summary/Abstract: Intellectual fraud and particularly plagiarism represent the major enemy of higher education in Romania, just like in other countries. After we define plagiarism and outline the current research regarding intellectual fraud among students internationally and in Romania, we present our own investigations regarding the self evaluation of honesty, the attributions that students assign to written exams cheating and downloading essays from internet. We also discuss guilt and shame feelings to different forms of intellectual fraud. Finally, we advance a proposal for the establishment of a Center for Academic Integrity”, following the blueprints of such a center that has been established in 1992 at Duke University (USA).
