The Concise Encyclopedia of Business Ethics (ISBN 978-0-9940760-1-4) aims to provide readers with a useful, concise overview of the central concepts and debates in business ethics. Our goal is not to be exhaustive, but to provide key definitions, main areas of controversy, and pointers for further reading.

The Encyclopedia is intended to be useful to: students of business ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility; scholars working in adjacent fields (such as economics and law) who are unfamiliar with current work in business ethics; and scholars of business ethics seeking greater understanding of concepts outside their specializations.


The Encyclopedia is written and updated by Chris MacDonald and Alexei Marcoux (editors of the Business Ethics Journal Review) and published by the Journal Review Foundation.
