ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING SUBMISSION OF NEW MANUSCRIPTS TO

Business & Society
Founded at Roosevelt University
Sponsored by the International Association for Business and Society
Published by SAGE Publications

Beginning January 1, 2007, all new manuscripts for the quarterly journal Business & Society, which completed its 45th volume of publication in December 2006, should be submitted to the incoming editor Duane Windsor at Rice University. The incoming editor encourages all interested researchers to submit original theoretical/conceptual or empirical manuscripts for review. The journal is interested in a wide range of research topics.

Aims and Scope
Business & Society publishes original research, book reviews, and dissertation abstracts relating to business ethics, business-government relations, corporate social responsibility, corporate governance, corporate social performance, environmental-management issues, stakeholder management, strategic aspects of business-society relations, and related topics. Manuscripts relating to the field of business and society in general are also published. Submissions of theoretical/conceptual work as well as empirical studies are encouraged. Business & Society is the first peer-reviewed scholarly publication devoted exclusively to the field of business and society, and it is the official journal of the International Association for Business and Society (IABS), the only independent professional association dedicated to business and society teaching and research. The association website http://iabs.net has a link to detailed information about the journal.

Manuscript Submission Guidelines
To submit electronically, please send two (2) files in MS Word to incoming editor Duane Windsor at odw@rice.edu. One file should contain only the title page with full contact information for each author. The other file should contain the abstract (100-150 words), text double-spaced, references, tables, figures, etc., but have no indication of the paper’s authorship.

Communication with authors and reviewers occurs through electronic mail. If an author has no access to electronic mail, submission by mail can be made by sending four copies of the manuscript to Duane Windsor, Editor, Jones Graduate School of Management MS-531, Rice University, P.O. Box 2932, Houston, TX 77252-2932 USA. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor.

New Reviewers Are Requested to Express Interest
