The Journal of Business Ethics publishes only original articles from a wide variety of methodological and disciplinary perspectives concerning ethical issues related to business that bring something new or unique to the discourse in their field. Contributors examine moral aspects of systems of production, consumption, marketing, advertising, social and economic accounting, labor relations, public relations and organizational behavior. 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.

From its inception the Journal has aimed to improve the human condition by providing a public forum for discussion and debate about ethical issues related to business.

The style and level of dialogue involve all who are interested in business ethics - the business community, universities, government agencies and consumer groups.
