Computer Ethics

The Tavani Bibliography of Computing, Ethics, and Social Responsibility: "The purpose of Computing, Ethics, and Social Responsibility: A Bibliography is to bring together in a single collection a comprehensive list of sources on computing issues that impact professional, ethical, and social responsibility. Since a number of bibliographic works on or related to computer ethics and computers in society already exist (see Appendix A), one may reasonably ask: "Why another bibliography?" Many of these bibliographies, including the most comprehensive collections, tend to concentrate on either ethical or social issues in computing and thus emphasize one set of issues at the exclusion of the other. A principal goal of the present bibliography is to include sources on both ethical and social issues in one work and to organize those sources under category headings familiar to computer professionals.

Online Enzyklopädien

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
This is an encyclopedia of Philosophy, freely available online: "From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up to date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board  before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. You can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in our Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents  lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents  also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected."

The submission and review process of articles is the same as that with printed philosophy journals, books and reference works. The authors are specialists in the areas in which they write, and are frequently leading authorities. Submissions are peer reviewed by specialists according to strict criteria."

"The free encyclopedia anyone can edit."
You can find a special section on Ethics referencing all articles in Wikipedia that are dealing with ethics : "This category puts articles relevant to well-known ethical (right and wrong, good and bad) debates and decisions in one place - including practical problems long known in philosophy, and the more abstract subjects in law, politics, and some professions and sciences. It lists also those core concepts essential to understanding ethics as applied in various religions, some movements derived from religions, and religions discussed as if they were a theory of ethics making no special claim to divine status.
The category also includes articles on non-ethics topics or fictional works or part of works that include a substantial ethical debate."
