Professionalism and ethics in the computing occupation Murray, Thomas A.


This study is concerned with the development of professional conduct and ethical codes in the computing field. An inquiry is made into the general structure of professional organizations and the idea of professionalization. Ethical codes of some professions are examined for their content as well as their role in the development and the identity of the professional society. This, in turn, is related to the principal computer societies of the western world, and to their progress in professionalization and development of ethical codes. The computing professions are found to follow a typical pattern of professional development.
