Museum ethics refer to the values on which museums found their operations. Therefore, they constitute a key issue in the museum world. In the last decade, there have been books, papers, institutions and individuals that solely discuss museum ethics. This collection of papers aims to contribute to this discussion. It is the published outcome of a session hosted at the 'Fourth International Conference on Information Law' (ICIL, 20th – 21st May 2011, Thessaloniki, Greece).1 This guest editorial explains the overall conception of this collection and provides an insider’s view of the papers.
