  1. I tried to download the document named Ethical Standards and Guidelines for PR Research and Measurement, but I noticed that there is only 2 pages (calculating the front page) in the document. I may think that the document has not been uploaded correctly.

    Do you think it could be possible to send me the complete document?

    Thanks a lot!

    By the way, I’m a big fan of your site!! There is so much references on PR Research! It’s incredibly well done! You help me very much in my PR practice!

    Best regards,
