This subject guide presents resources for researching the range of topics related to media ethics. Ethical practice in journalism encompasses issues such as source selection and identification, coverage of minorities, privacy, and conflict of interest. Avoiding actual or perceived bias is another of these issues. With the expansion of social media communication patterns, ethical considerations are as important as ever. The emphasis for this guide is on Media Ethics within the Communication disciplines; however, some broader works are recognized as well.
