Media Ethics is independent and inclusive. It is editorially eclectic and neither its sponsors, its editor, or its staff are responsible for its content.  It strives to present and examine ideas, provide a forum for opinion and research articles on media ethics, as well as a venue for announcements and reviews of meetings, opportunities, and publications.  Media Ethics welcomes any and all contributions. All submitted manuscripts are subject to editing at the discretion of the editor.

 

Photographs and other illustrations often are digitally altered. Unless otherwise specified, authors and photographers retain all rights to their work, subject only to print and electronic publication by Media Ethics itself.

An Apology

As you receive this edition of Media Ethics magazine, its late arrival cannot be blamed on global warming, as can inclement weather and rising temperatures. This issue—Fall, 2015, vol. 27, no. 1—is months late in being produced and distributed. The blame for most of this delay should be placed on the editor, whose contacts with the medical profession were all too common between mid-autumn and mid-winter, and not upon either authors or production staff. Rather than “skip” an issue, causing all sorts of problems for libraries, indexers, those wishing to cite the magazine and have a time frame to obey, and similar reasons to keep the numbering system intact, the editor believes that the better course is to publish the Fall 2015 issue “late,” and then work as hard as possible to get back on schedule with a Spring 2016 issue that will be uploaded to mediaethicsmagazine.com sometime in the late spring.

You can be of great assistance in meeting this challenge to Media Ethics: Please send any articles, commentaries, reports or other material dealing in any way with “media” and “ethics” to the magazine (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) as soon as you can, so that your submissions can be reviewed, edited, and otherwise processed as early as possible. This is a year in which there already have been a number of new and old ethical conundrums facing the mass and the social media, and with the U. S. Presidential election already raising ever-more questions about ethics, your ideas, opinions and information will be valuable as well as welcome.
