Journal of Mass Media Ethics 4 (1):39 – 52 (1989)
As the public relations (PR) field becomes more and more concerned about ethics, attention turns to ethics instruction in university public relations programs.

According to the author, no basic conceptual framework has emerged to suggest common ground for studying public relations ethics and the default position seems to be to teach social responsibility / professionalism
