The editorship of Business and Society Review (BASR), one of the leading journals in the business and society field, is now in Duquesne's Palumbo-Donahue School of Business.

BASR is a peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes original research on a wide range of ethical issues concerning the relationships between business, society and the public good. Dr. David Wasieleski, Albert Paul Viragh Professor in Business Ethics, has been named as editor-in-chief.

"It is an honor for us to take over the editorship of this prestigious journal," said Wasieleski, who is also the executive director of the Viragh Institute for Ethics in Business at Duquesne. "We intend to continue the fine legacy of BASR as one of the top journals in the business and society field. Under our stewardship, it is our goal to raise its profile and reputation internationally for publishing impactful research."

Dr. James Weber, professor of business ethics and management, will serve as managing editor of BASR. "We are excited to continue to build on the reputation of BASR and further enhance the quality of published articles," said Weber.

The journal publishes papers from researchers and business professionals, members of the legal profession and government administrators, among others.

"Bringing the editorship of BASR into the School of Business is a tremendous accomplishment and a testament to the impact of our faculty in business ethics and related areas," said Dr. Dean McFarlin, dean of the School of Business. "This journal is a fitting addition to the growing portfolio of scholarly activities in the Viragh Institute and I know Dr. Wasieleski will lead BASR to greater heights as its new editor-in-chief."

BASR was founded in 1972 and is published by Wiley on behalf of Bentley University's W. Michael Hoffman Center for Business Ethics.
