e-professionalism

noun blending and clipping
A concept that addresses the expectations and etiquette of communication in online venues. E-professionalism appropriates the term "professionalism" and extrapolates it to digital contexts such as e-mail communication with an employer or personal content posted to public locations like social media sites.
 
"One of the major functions of medical education is professional identity formation; e-professionalism is an essential and increasingly important element of professional identity formation, because the consequences of violations of e-professionalism have escalated from academic sanctions to revocation of licensure."
Etymology : Prefixing the word "professional," which refers to a character of conduct representing normative standards for business or workplace settings, with the morpheme "e-," itself a clipping of "electronic" that has come to become a common prefix with respect to the Internet (as in e-mail or e-reader).
