Business Ethics Quarterly
ABOUT THE SOCIETY FOR BUSINESS ETHICS
History and Purpose
Founded in 1980, the Society for Business Ethics is a non-profit organization of scholars and others interested in business ethics. The Society provides an international forum for those interested in research, teaching, or the practical application of ethical principles and concepts to the management of businesses. It conducts an annual meeting for the presentation and discussion of new research, issues a newsletter with information of interest to members, produces the scholarly journal Business Ethics Quarterly, and provides resources for those engaged in business ethics in their daily lives.
Richard De George, one of the society's founding members, wrote A History of the Society for Business Ethics on its 25th Anniversary to mark that occasion.
SBE's annual meeting provides an opportunity for members to present research results, to become acquainted with the latest developments in teaching and research, to engage in the discussion of emerging business ethics issues, and to enjoy the fellowship of their colleagues in the field. Meetings are held in early August, generally prior to the meeting for the Academy for Management. Papers presented at the annual meeting are peer-reviewed. Submissions are welcome from all business ethics scholars and professionals.
The Society for Business Ethics sponsors the following publications:
Business Ethics Quarterly, 1991-present
Society For Business Ethics Newsletter, 1989-present
Spiritual Goods: Faith Traditions and the Practice of Business (An SBE Anthology, 2001)
