Business Ethics Journals

The field of business ethics has advanced to the point at which there are a number of very good peer-reviewed scholarly journals in the field. Journal of Business Ethics is perhaps the dominant journal in business ethics. It is very widely read, and is on the Financial Times’ FT 50 list, which gives the journal credibility in particular among business scholars and business school deans. Business Ethics Quarterly (the official journal of the Society for Business Ethics) is arguably the most admired journal from a scholarly, philosophical point of view.

Note: this is not an exhaustive list. There are many other journals that are either dedicated to publishing, or occasionally publish, scholarly work on business ethics and related fields. For example, beyond journals dedicated fully to the study of business ethics, work on business ethics is also sometimes published in philosophy journals, in management journals, and in special-topic journals such as journals related to environmental ethics or accounting ethics.
