Free registration required

Executive Summary

The purpose of this paper is to develop a ranking of academic business ethics journals. For this, a revealed preference approach, also known as a citation impact method, was employed. The citation data were generated by using Google Scholar; h-index, g-index and hc-index were utilised to obtain a ranking. It was observed that the scores of these three indices correlated almost perfectly. This paper also demonstrates that business ethics is a well-established discipline that should have its own set of recognised academic outlets.
