Journal of Business Ethics

Following its annual conferences yearly special issues of the Journal of Business Ethics get published with a selection of the best papers presented at our Annual EBEN Conference.

Since its initiation in 1980, the editors have encouraged the broadest possible scope. The term 'business' is understood in a wide sense to include all systems involved in the exchange of goods and services, while 'ethics' is circumscribed as all human action aimed at securing a good life. Systems of production, consumption, marketing, advertising, social and economic accounting, labour relations, public relations and organisational behaviour are analysed from a moral viewpoint.

The style and level of dialogue involve all who are interested in business ethics - the business community, universities, government agencies and consumer groups. Speculative philosophy as well as reports of empirical research are welcomed.

In order to promote a dialogue between the various interested groups as much as possible, papers are presented in a style relatively free of specialist jargon.
