The purpose of this study was to investigate some effects on Turkish pre-service teachers’ digital citizenship behaviours. With the rapid spread of technology, individuals have become a part of the digital world and faced the accompanying need to develop their digital citizenship skills. It has gained importance to reveal the factors affecting the digital citizenship skills of pre-service teachers, who will raise the digital citizens of the future. Data was gathered from participants using three questionnaires written in Turkish. The results showed that internet self-efficacy, self-computer and self-internet effect digital citizenship. Internet self-efficacy also examined in terms of some variables as an important factor for digital citizenship.  Findings of this study help understanding some variables’ significant contributions on preservice teachers’ digital citizenship levels. This study provides a useful guideline for increasing preservice teachers’ digital citizenship scores by determining factors which can be manipulated through system design and implementation.
