    What is "Business and Society 360"?

    Business and Society 360 Book Series, published by Emerald and sponsored by the International Association for Business and Society, is an annual book series featuring a comprehensive discussion and review of the current "state" of the research and theoretical developments in a specific BAS area – a 360-degree look at a selected topic.  A "360-degree examination" of a research area involves an all around assessment using multiple field experts to supply an analysis and review for the purpose of achieving a full understanding of a topic.  Thus, each volume is a combination of invited and editorial reviewed chapters providing an overview of past work and highlighting cutting-edge research on the selected topic. Five volumes in the series have been published thus far.

    2022 Call for Chapter Abstracts

    This call for book chapters focuses on addressing cutting edge research in the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) area (broadly considered) that carries the potential to advance the theories within this domain forward.   Authors are invited to submit a short abstract summarizing the content and approach of the proposed book chapter. Submissions should reflect "new" original research in the business ethics realm.  We are open to a theoretical or empirical piece, a review of the literature, or chapters recommending suggestions for future research in the area.  The growing DEI area of work includes, but is not limited to, promoting diversity, justice, and elimination of bias on non-relevant respects across people in the workplace with inclusion as the end goal.

    Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the editorial team. Invitations to write an entire chapter will be sent based on the reviews.
