13 <H2>Introduction</H2>
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.
