About the Journal

The Journal Ethics, Economics and Common Goods aims to be a space for debate and discussion on issues of social and economic ethics. Topics and issues range from theory to practical ethical questions affecting our contemporary societies. The journal is especially, but not exclusively, concerned with the relationship between ethics, economics and the different aspects of common goods perspective in social ethics. Social and economic ethics is a rapidly changing field. The systems of thought and ideologies inherited from the 20th century seem to be exhausted and prove incapable of responding to the challenges posed by, among others, artificial intelligence, the transformation of labor and capital, the finanzialisation of the economy, the stagnation of middle-class wages, and the growing ideological polarization of our societies.

The Journal Ethics, Economics and the Common Goods promotes contributions to scientific debates that combine high academic rigor with originality of thought. In the wake of a return of ideologies and the rise of moral neo-pharisaisms, the journal aims to be a space for rational, free, serious and open dialogue. All articles in the journal undergo a process of double anonymous peer review. In addition, it guarantees authors a rapid review of the articles submitted to it. It is an online, open access Journal publishing its articles under a creative commons license.

Research articles, Research reports, Essays and Responses are double-blind peer reviewed. The journal is bi-annual and publishes two issues per year, in July and December. The journal is pleased to publish articles in French, English and Spanish.

Jérôme Ballet, University of Bordeaux for fifteen years, its editorial team is now assumed by prof. Maria Teresa Herrera Rendon (UPAEP).
