14     <P>
15     This essay discusses the principles of ethics, both in their specific
16     application to the Information Technology profession, and to their
17     more general application to professional disciplines. In particular
18     the Codes of Ethics of the <EM>Australian Computer Society</EM> (ACS),
19     <EM>Association for Computing Machinery</EM> (ACM), and the
20     <EM>Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers</EM> (IEEE) are
21     examined. The <EM>Australian National University</EM> (ANU) code
22     <EM>Academic Honesty in Learning and Teaching</EM> is also examined to
23     highlight similarities between issues raised and those raised by the
24     abovementioned professional societies. Finally, two real-world
25     scenarios will be presented and discussed within the context of
26     professional ethics.

29     <H2>Generic principles</H2>
30     <P>
31     There are a number of generic principles common to the various Codes
32     of Ethics. These principles are not necessarily specific to the field
33     of Information Technology, but may relevant to many professional
34     disciplines.
