What are ethics?
Ethics are moral standards of conduct agreed upon to define right and wrong. That which is ethical is considered morally correct. That which is unethical is considered morally wrong. Ethics are usually considered in a professional code of conduct as a qualified professional is under more expection than an unqualified individual to have a learned understanding of the accepted principles of right and wrong.
Learning ethics in online media
Principles of ethics in online media is the scope for this resource; however, this resource draws upon comparisons that center on the English Wikipedia, which has over a quarter-million biographies of living persons (BLPs) as well as many articles that characterize people, organizations, events, and other aspects of human activity. The degree to which the content and practices of Wikimedia projects adhere to commonly recognized principles of ethics, which include such comparisons of Wikipedia, are what this resource examines.
Temporary guideline: This project currently does not accept case studies of living people until further notice.
