    • Abstract:
      Introduction. The article presents a bibliometric study of the research work published in Spanish indexed scientific journals about education on journalism ethics and deontology with the objective of reflecting on the status of research, identifying strengths and potential analytical deficiencies, and establishing principles in a time of communicative transformation. Methodology. It uses a mixed methodology supported by qualitative and quantitative techniques of document review and content analysis applied to the 52 journals of Communication of the database DICE in the period 2005-2015 analyzing three categories: source, content and formative prescriptions. Results. The study identifies little interest from Spanish researchers and universities, with the concrete result of eight research articles about teaching in ten years of formative and technological changes, in a moment of special relevance for the ethical challenges of the new communicative environment. The experts analyzed prescribe a teaching of ethics based on applied philosophy from case studies. Discussion. The research gaps detected around the new ethical dilemmas highlight the need to intensify the academic debate about the importance that the subject must have in the curricula and the adaptation of the subject to the digital environment.
