A Review on the Ethical Principles of Conduct on Turkish University Websites


The aim of this study is to examine whether state universities in Turkey include ethical behavior principles on their university web pages. From past to present, ethical standards for university members and students are discussed, and these people who share the university environment are expected to act in accordance with ethical principles. Universities, on the other hand, are obliged to clearly share the current ethical principles with all their members and students and are responsible for contributing to their applicability. For this purpose, the websites of 129 state universities in Turkey were examined whether they included basic ethical principles for academicians, staff and students. In this direction, purposive sampling method, which aims to examine in the context of the purpose of the study, was used. The sample of the study consists of all state universities in Turkey (N=129). In the study, the texts on the university web pages were examined within the scope of document analysis, one of the qualitative research methods. According to the results obtained, no content on "Ethical Behavior Principles" was found on the websites of 49 state universities in Turkey. At the end of the study, 40 universities that do not have this content will be contacted via e-mail and a request will be made to position the content.
