African Journal of Business Ethics

The African Journal of Business Ethics (AJoBE) is the official journal of the Business Ethics Network (BEN) Africa. It was established in 2005 with the express purpose of promoting business ethics scholarship on the African continent. The journal is open access and is accredited with the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS). We aim to publish two editions of the journal yearly. 

The aim of the journal is to contribute to the expansion and establishment of business ethics as an academic field in Africa. In pursuit of this aim, we wish to not only build a continental journal of high quality, but to also ensure that it achieves broad international credibility.  We invite scholars and practitioners to submit speculative philosophical papers, opinion papers, theoretical papers, empirical research reports (both quantitative and qualitative), as well as book reviews.  All contributions within the broad general scope of business ethics are welcome.  Guidelines for authors can be found here:
