One of the main goals of this research is to carry out a comprehensive study on the academic dishonesty practices among Spanish university students. To answer the research questions we designed a national investigation based on a cross-sectional survey aimed at the targeted population. The sample consisted of a total of 560 students and the procedure was a non-probability sampling. The research findings do not show substantial use of ICT in dishonest practices when replying to written exams. Ion the other hand, Internet has become the main source of students for the plagiarism of academic essays and papers.
