    Heroes Don't Cheat: An Examination of Academic Dishonesty and Students' Views on Why Professors Don't Report Cheating.Jamee Gresley, Heidi Wallace, Julie M. Hupp & Sara Staats - 2009 - Ethics and Behavior 19 (3):171-183.
    Some students do not cheat. Students high in measures of bravery, honesty, and empathy, our defining characteristics of heroism, report less past cheating than other students. These student heroes also reported that they would feel more guilt if they cheated and also reported less intent to cheat in the future than nonheroes. We find general consensus between students and professors as to reasons for the nonreporting of cheating, suggesting a general impression of insufficient evidence, lack of courage, and denial.

    Reasons for Companion Animal Guardianship (Pet Ownership) from Two Populations.Sara Staats, Heidi Wallace & Tara Anderson - 2008 - Society and Animals 16 (3):279-291.

The sample assessed reasons given for companion-animal guardianship and for belief in the beneficial health effects of owning pets. In this replication and extension design, these two non-random samples responded to the same questionnaire items as those addressed to university faculty.

    An Examination of Academic Misconduct Intentions and the Ineffectiveness of Syllabus Statements.Sara Staats & Julie M. Hupp - 2012 - Ethics and Behavior 22 (4):239 - 247.
    This experiment uses quantitative and qualitative measures to address the effect of two syllabus statements on academic misconduct: one based on prohibitions and one on academic integrity. Students expressed favorable attitudes toward the statements, showed an increase in guilt compared to a control group, but showed no decrease in intentions to cheat. Including only a standard academic misconduct statement in one's syllabus is not sufficient to alter behavior, which should be acknowledged by faculty.
