    Special Issue on Ethics Studies


    Ethics seeks to resolve questions of human morality by defining concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice and crime. As a field of intellectual enquiry, it is also related to the fields of moral psychology, descriptive ethics, and value theory, and recognized in three major areas of Meta-ethics, Normative ethics and Applied ethics.

    • Meta-ethics

    • Political ethics
    • Animal ethics

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
