Ethical Issues in Publishing

Confidentiality – when discussing personal information about one subject/a case study (eg. medical research); confidentiality should be upheld in order to protect the subject or participant. It is only considered ethical to be granted permission from the subject/participants before publishing anything and even once permission is granted the name(s) should not be included to protect the person/people at hand.

Race – under the act of equality laws all peoples of any race must be documented and discussed equally to avoid discrimination and bias.

Gender – under the act of equality laws all peoples of any gender and sexuality must be documented and discussed equally to avoid discrimination and bias.

Religion – under the act of equality laws all peoples of any religion belief  and sexuality must be documented and discussed equally to avoid discrimination and bias. 

Equal Opportunities – people from any background, race, gender, sexuality, religion should have an equal opportunity to publish or put forwards a story to be published.
