Research on Accounting Ethics


Elsevier's "Research on Accounting Ethics" series is devoted exclusively to the advancement of ethics research and education in the profession and practice of accounting. Its threefold mission is to: advance innovative and applied ethics research in all accounting-related disciplines on a global basis; improve ethics education in and throughout the professional accounting and management curricula at undergraduate and graduate levels; and provide a source of information for the professional accounting and auditing community for integrating ethics and good business practices in public firms, business corporations and governmental organizations. The series features articles on a broad range of important and timely topics, including professionalism, social responsibility, individual morality, accountability, good business practices in public accounting and the litigation crisis. Papers are empirical or theoretical in nature, and draw upon paradigms in related disciplines such as philosophy, psychology, theology, economics and sociology. The eighth volume of "Research on Accounting Ethics" addresses a wide range of issues including faculty perceptions on the inclusion of business ethics in the curriculum and the importance of context in investigating auditors' moral abilities.
