’’I am extremely proud of this nomination to the Editorial Board since I have been doing some review work over the years for Business Ethics Quarterly (BEQ) and one of our best papers was published by BEQ in 2012 after high quality review process. When looking at the list of other names on the Editoral Board and their affiliations, I must say that me and EBS are here in a really good company,’’ prof Mäkinen says.
Changes in Editorial Team of Journals are central to the maintenance of vibrant intellectual communities but also reliant on these communities for their proper functioning, Editors in Chief of the Journal, Frank den Hond and Mollie Painter note. „As editors, we remain indebted to those individuals who help us run a successful journal, and hope that more members will join us in this, as others who have served tirelessly step down to pursue other interests.“
Business Ethics Quarterly (BEQ) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal which publishes theoretical and empirical research relevant to the ethics of business, corporate social responsibility, and corporate sustainability.
Recognizing that contributions to the better understanding of these topics can come from any quarter, and that the best scholarship on these themes is often interdisciplinary in nature, it publishes scholarship from the humanities, social sciences, and professional fields, as well as scholarship that crosses disciplinary boundaries.
It has published articles and reviews on a broad range of topics, including the internal ethics of business organizations, the ethics of specific business practices such as marketing, stakeholder relations, and international business, the role of business organizations in larger social, political and cultural frameworks, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and environmental ethics in business, and the ethical quality of market-based societies and relationships.
