The Concise Encyclopedia of Business Ethics (ISBN 978-0-9940760-1-4) is published on a nonprofit basis by the Journal Review Foundation and written by Chris MacDonald and Alexei Marcoux, editors of the Business Ethics Journal Review. Both are philosophers and business ethics professors.

The authors’ aim in writing the Concise Encyclopedia of Business Ethics was to provide readers with a useful, concise overview of key issues in business ethics. Our aim is not to be exhaustive, but to provide key definitions, main areas of controversy, and pointers for further reading.
