Seven Pillars Institute publishes its Journal, Moral Cents: The Journal of
Ethics in Finance, biannually (January and July). Moral Cents hopes to
improve the practice of finance and its consequences by providing a public
forum for discussion and debate about ethical issues related to finance.
The reasoned dialogue involves those interested in a global financial
system that is ethically conscious: the financial community, government,
academia, and consumer groups.
The Journal welcomes submissions from practitioners, academics, policy
makers, analysts, students, and the informed public from around the world.
The Journal especially encourages submissions from those who work in
philosophy, finance, and economics. Submissions should focus on ethical
issues in global finance, with finance being broadly defined to encompass
the private (corporate and investments related), public (government at all
levels), and international spheres. Submissions and articles on finance
ethics in countries other than the U.S., including Islamic countries, also
Articles can be research based or perspectives based. Research articles
should report on research done in finance ethics and its policy and
practice implications. Research articles also can focus on new ideas and
developments in the new field of finance ethics.
Perspective articles are based on opinion. Such articles should be thought
provoking and promote a robust debate. Both research and perspective
pieces should consider strongly as a goal the stimulation of finance
policy changes where ethics are questionable.
