AbstractThis review essay traces the development of journalism ethics and standards by focusing on scholarship in the field. The essay provides an overview of the works of scholars and institutes or centers whose research and related activities have figured prominently in a renewed interest in journalism ethics. An assessment of the literature indicates a great deal of progress has been made, especially in the production of classroom materials, but that scholarship remains relatively underdeveloped. Large gaps separate the practical from the theoretical, and the realms of the classroom from the newsroom. Future research directions are suggested, including additional exploration of journalism ethics across different cultures and social-economic-political systems. Besides numerous bibliographical references, the essay includes annotated websites especially useful in conducting research on or teaching about journalism ethics.
