Home > Article > Surveying Information Ethics in Quran: A Quantitative Content Analysis
The purpose of this paper was to survey the quantity of information ethics. It sought to answer the question whether or not this information exists in Quranic verses. In this paper, the entire Quran was identified and analyzed with regard to information ethics from the perspective of Quranic scholars, experts and librarians. After various phases of coding and categorization, the Quranic themes were categorized on the basis of their Persian translation and then were analyzed by SPSS software. For this study, 6236 verses of the Holy Quran were studied out of which 171 verses including information ethics context were coded and classified. After that, each of them was analyzed in relation to the main research question. As the Holy Quran has been revealed by God, it could be called a complete declaration of information ethics. Conclusion: man is by nature a social creature requiring interaction. Based on this kind of life, an ethical framework is needed in order to continue his life in peace. The issue of ethics is one of the basic issues with which man is grappling throughout his daily life, which is, in it, increasingly moving towards the production of information and knowledge. Hence, if these information are void of ethical aura, the result would be the loss of human and social relations as well as the disappearance of the human race.
