The Journal of Business Ethics publishes original articles from a wide variety of methodological and disciplinary perspectives concerning ethical issues related to business. Since its initiation in 1980 the editors have encouraged the broadest posssible 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 ñ 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. Book reviews are a regular feature of the journal. As of 1997 the Journal of Business Ethics has no longer published material specifically dealing with the teaching of business ethics. In order to better serve the needs of authors and readers who have particular interests in teaching a new journal called Teaching Business Ethics has been initiated. Interested consumers may contact the publisher for more information.
