With SCCE, Ethikos to continue its more than 25-year history of examining business ethics

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ethikos magazine, a 25-year old bi-monthly publication that examines ethical issues in business, has been acquired by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE), the association announced today.

"We're very honored to have the opportunity to continue the tradition established by Ethikos," said SCCE Chief Executive Officer Roy Snell.  "Our plan is for it to become an even more valuable resource for the business ethics community."

For more than 26 years Ethikos has brought insight into the complex, nuanced world of business ethics. On January 1, 2014, Ethikos began a new era when the SCCE became its new publisher. Starting with the January/February 2014 issue of Ethikos, the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics will both uphold and enhance that tradition.

"We're thrilled the SCCE has agreed to continue publishing Ethikos," said former Ethikos publisher Andy Singer.  "It's been a pleasure building the publication, and we look forward to it having a long life with the SCCE."

As the new publisher, SCCE will be sharpening the focus on ethics issues, making Ethikos a great companion to the editorial contained in Compliance and Ethics Professional, the monthly member magazine of the SCCE and eCorporate Compliance News, a weekly email newsletter. Readers can also expect SCCE to bring new resources and voices to the publication.

"We're looking at bringing the leading voices in the business ethics community to the pages of Ethikos," said Snell.
