In this research, it is aimed to determine the effect of the attitudes of postgraduate students towards scientific research and codes of conduct, supported by digital script. This research is a quantitative study, and it has been formed according to pre-test & post-test research model of experiment and control group. In both groups, lessons were performed in the ways of distance education on the YDU-UZEM system and co-education. Besides, the experimental group was supported by digital scripts. Course materials have been shared through the system onto each group's own page. The distance education lessons were performed simultaneously and non-simultaneously. The simultaneous lessons were performed through Big Blue Button virtual class add-in, and non-simultaneous lessons were performed through chatting panel and integration of the recorded lessons onto the system in order to review the lessons whenever needed. In the both groups, there are 40 (80 in total) postgraduate students from the programs of the institutions of Near East University. The groups were designated, as a result of achievement test applied as a pre-test before the study, homogeneously in accordance with their school numbers with regards to success and gender; that the ones with school numbers of which last digits are odd number are the control group, and the ones with school numbers of which last digits are even number are the experimental group. In order to collect the required data, research-directed attitude scale was used after getting required permission. The obtained data were analyzed with appropriate analyzing techniques. With the findings acquired from this research, it is concluded that there is a meaningful difference in favor of the experimental group supported by the digital scripts after examining the both groups' attitudes towards scientific research and ethics.
