This guide is unique. It is more than the traditional list of dos and don’ts that so many j-schools provide their students about acceptable journalistic practice. Instead, this one is posted online in a format that encourages debate and invites a conversation about the standard rules of journalistic practice. It’s New York University’s handbook on ethics, law and good journalistic practice online. It’s extensive, well organized, thoughtful and an excellent model for any j-school developing its own set of guidelines. NYU chose this format to encourage a discussion about journalistic ethics and judging by the comments posted in the last few months  it has succeeded.
