New policy, ethics and staff manual elements posted
Just to give everyone a heads-up, the SPRC just published its Foundations of Journalism package to offer a new look at how editorial policies interact with ethical guidelines and staff manual procedures.
The package is available at http://jeasprc.org/buildingfoundations/
and includes separate models for possible board- and media-level policies, including rationale for each. The ethics and staff manual examples work together so you can see models for ethical guidelines and staff manual statements or procedures to carry them out.
Please take a look at the whole package, including rationale of why we’re taking a new look at policy and ethics interaction. Each model ethics statement and staff manual process includes resource links. A general resources list is available for the whole project.
