    Trust and the economics of news.Bastiaan Vanacker & Genelle Belmas - 2009 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 24 (2-3):110 – 126.
    As trust in the news media continues to decline, news organizations must find ways to bolster that trust, often in the face of diminishing budgets and dwindling bottom lines. Can trust support and even bolster economic success in news organizations? We offer a multidimensional model of trust that takes into account, among other elements, considerations of risk and scope, and suggest that journalistic excellence and economic success can support each other and result in increased public trust in news media.

    The Problem with Apu: Recognizing Moral Issues in Media Ethics.Bastiaan Vanacker - 2023 - Journal of Media Ethics 38 (4):255-266.
    The task of media ethicists is not only to shine a light on the dilemmas facing our field, but also to point out what the moral issues of the day are. Why is it that some cases and issues appear on our radar, in our textbooks, web sites and journals? Using the example of how the problematic nature of the Apu character in The Simpsons escaped the attention of this author and other media ethicists, this essay explores how media ethicists (...)

    Facing the Future: Media Ethics, Bioethics, and the World's First Face Transplant.Marjorie Kruvand & Bastiaan Vanacker - 2011 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 26 (2):135 - 157.
    When the world's first face transplant was performed in France in 2005, the complex medical procedure and accompanying worldwide media attention sparked many ethical issues, including how the media covered the story. This study uses framing theory to examine what happens when media ethics intersect with bioethics by analyzing French, American, and British media coverage on the transplant and its aftermath. This study looks at how this story was framed and which bioethical issues were focused upon. The media ethical implications (...)

    Returning students' right to access, choice and notice: a proposed code of ethics for instructors using Turnitin. [REVIEW]Bastiaan Vanacker - 2011 - Ethics and Information Technology 13 (4):327-338.
    This paper identifies the ethical issues associated with college instructors’ use of plagiarism detection software (PDS), specifically the Turnitin program. It addresses the pros and cons of using such software in higher education, arguing that its use is justified on the basis that it increases institutional trust, and demonstrating that two common criticisms of such software are not universally valid. An analysis of the legal issues surrounding Turnitin, however, indicates that the way it is designed and operates raises some ethical (...)
