Ethics resources for editors

We encourage every b2b publication to adhere to an established ethics policy. While there may be some regional differences to be found in different organizations' policies, the same core journalistic ethics should come through. TABPI does not maintain its own ethics guidelines, but we provide this list of journalism-related ethics links as a resource for all b2b editors.

In particular, the recently revised Guide to Preferred Editorial Practices from the American Society of Business Publication Editors is an excellent starting point for any organization to develop their own ethics guidelines or standards.
