The September 1995 edition of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) Transactions on Professional Communication (Vol. 38, No. 3)
is dedicated to the subject of ethics in professional communications.

If anyone has access to a university library that carries the IEEE publications,
this would be a good one to read.

The various papers adddress ethics in terms of early writer education issues,
professional codes, false inference and masking, quality end products, etc.
These papers do NOT focus on just technical writing; they address writing in
the general sense and compare modern written communications to predecessor
disciplines such as journalism.

As one of the author's put it, "Bad writing is normal, but not natural" and
"Bad rhetoric goes hand-in-hand with bad ethics."
