Information for Authors

Submission of a manuscript is understood to imply that

  • the paper is original
  • it has not already been published in whole or in substantial part elsewhere
  • it is not currently under consideration by any other journal
  • the publication of the paper in the journal would not infringe the copyright or other rights of any other person(s)
  • to the best of the author(s)'s knowledge, the paper does not contain any scandalous, libelous, obscene, unlawful, or otherwise objectionable material
  • the author(s) will agree to the publication of the paper in the journal if the paper is accepted for publication in the journal and
  • the paper is available for publication in the journal free of charge.

Two copies of the manuscript must be supplied.

Submissions must be in English, and must be typewritten or printed, double-spaced, using one side of the page.

Articles are normally not more than 6000 words in length.

Papers submitted for publication in the journal will be blind refereed. In order to facilitate double-blind refereeing, the author(s)'s name(s) should not be shown on the manuscript, and all identifying references to the author(s)'s own work(s) should be masked or omitted.

Please note that the editors will communicate only with the 'first author' of a paper. In the case of co-authored papers it will be the responsibility of the 'first author' to pass on to the co-author(s) communications from the editors.

Manuscripts should conform to journal style. When a paper has been accepted, author(s) will be required to ensure that it conforms to journal style, and to supply an electronic version.

Journal Style & Editorial Policies

The Oxford English Dictionary is the journal's standard for spelling.

Substantial quotations should be indented without quotation marks. Other quotations should be enclosed by single quotation marks. Double quotation marks should be used only as innermost quotation marks within single quotation marks, or where necessary to ensure fidelity to another's work.

Published works referred to in the text should be in parentheses containing author, date (and page number(s) if necessary).

From (and including) Volume 12, all in-text references and the Reference List should follow the APA (American Psychological Association) style of referencing.

The journal will publish original papers of high quality in any area of professional and applied ethics. It will also publish discussions and case studies. Reviews of important recent books in professional and applied ethics and book notes will also be published. Under the guidance of the Editorial Board a small number of critical notices will be commissioned each year.
