What have we learned about the ethical dimensions of information systems since Mason’s seminal paper in 1986 that suggested Privacy, Accuracy, Property, and Accessibility (PAPA) were the four ethical issues of the information age? Was Mason right? Have other issues arisen, given the increased amount of data that each person spawns in their daily lives, from swiping a credit card, buying online, or updating profiles on social networking sites? To answer these and other pertinent questions, this special issue invites original papers and case studies that examine the ethical impact of information systems on business and society. Qualitative as well as quantitative analysis methodologies are encouraged. Topics include, but are not limited to:
·         Meta-studies of past theoretical viewpoints
·         Philosophical frameworks that help describe the nature of ethical issues in information systems
·         Modeling the ethical decision-making process
·         Social and psychological theories applied to ethical decision-making
·         Case studies in particular areas, such as big data, security, m-commerce, or health IT
·         New approaches to understanding ethical issues in information systems
All submissions must be made through the Elsevier journal website (http://ees.elsevier.com/infman/). A guide for authors is also provided on the website. Please note in your submission that the paper is intended for the special issue on IS Ethics. Important dates are as follows:
Submission Site Opens: July 1, 2013
