American Society of News Editors/Poynter Ethics Tool
The Ethics Tool is designed to help journalists develop solutions to ethics problems. It poses a series of questions about your ethics case, then compiles your responses in a document you can print. The tool also lets you invite others to work on the problem with you and upload relevant documents. Only you and the people you invite are able to view the case; secure socket encryption protects your case.
