(Submissions due May 15, 2010)

The Society for Business Ethics is soliciting dissertations completed between May 1, 2008, and April 30, 2010.  While dissertations must focus on business ethics, work from all disciplines are welcome.  Those wishing to be considered for the award should submit a 10-page abstract.  (From amongst the abstracts three finalists will then be selected and asked to submit their full-length theses.) 

A complete submission will include these three separate attachments:

– An abstract of not more than ten double-spaced pages of text (including tables, figures, and appendices), 1” margins throughout, Time’s New Roman 12-point font.  (Any references provided can be in addition to the 10 pages of text.)  The author’s name, the advisor’s name, and the university’s name should not be mentioned anywhere in this abstract.

– A copy of the signature page, with university name, signatures, and date of defence.

– A title page with the author’s current mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and email address.  The title page must be sent as a separate file from the abstract.

Please note that the committee welcomes both normative/philosophical and social science/empirical dissertations.  Submissions are due May 15, 2010, and should be sent to:
