In 2018, 13 Georgian Universities have implemented Plagiarism Detection and Prevention Program (PDPP) within the framework of the EU-supported project. This process establishes favorable conditions for the study of students’ behavior, incentives and the use of plagiarism in pre- PDPP era and after its implementation. To prove the significance impact of the PDPP on academic honesty and to assess the system for effectiveness we use statistical tests. The experience observed in western universities confirms that the existence of PDPP is correlated with the reduction of plagiarism. Though, the effective application of PDPP entirely depends on the efforts of Georgian universities to pursue anti-plagiary policy. Along with the policy analysis, plagiarism perceptions and attitudes have been studied in accordance with historical and cultural environment. The research also analyses the study in the paradigm of risk and benefit from students point of a view as a decision-making process (weighing probability of detection and penalty size and positive mark).
