LSA ethics statement

Members of the Linguistic Society of America will know that the LSA has been working on an ethics statement for a good while. It's out now, see here, and it's already been picked up in the media, here. As the story makes clear, part of the purpose is to educate Institutional Review Boards about ethical issues in linguistics and how they differ from other fields. A step forward, I think.
