ASBPE Launches Ethics Advisory Program
Ethics committee to respond to e-mail queries and post responses online.
The American Society of Business Publications Editors has launched an ethics advisory program to offer advice on ethical issues in both editorial and advertising to its members via e-mail.
Once an e-mail is received, the ethics committee will then review the issue and respond within 10 business days, the society says. Keeping the e-mailer’s identity undisclosed, ASBPE says it will post the response in the members-only section of its Web site.
Each ASBPE response will review “relevant factors” and will cite the applicable portions of ASBPE’s Guide to Preferred Editorial Practices, the society says.
