This study aims to discuss the graduate students' views on scientific research and publication ethics. In this context, the opinions of future academics on scientific ethics were examined. The study group consisted of 24 Master’s Degree students of Siirt University who take/have taken a scientific ethics course. In the study, semi-structured interview questions regarding scientific ethics were prepared and applied to the study group. In this context, interviews were recorded in writing. During the analysis of the data, the themes were created by analysing the content of the issues and these themes were analysed descriptively. The results of this study revealed that the ethics education course is effective in making the students of graduate education conscious of scientific ethics and that there were serious perceptions of ethical violations. To avoid this, it would be beneficial to provide a good ethical education and review all academic studies.
