Expanding the IT Territory: Creating Space for Ethical IT
This paper proposes a three dimensional model representing the IT territory, with a view to incorporating ethical professional practice as integral to the discipline. The evolving nature of the IT discipline is mapped along Information-Technology and Developer-User continuums and the ethical nature of the IT profession is mapped along an Inward-Outward continuum. Suggested uses for the model include a reconceptualising of the IT professional space, guidance for ethical formation and support, and inspiration for individual and organisational standards.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
