    The ethical attitudes of students as a function of age, sex and experience.Susan C. Borkowski & Yusuf J. Ugras - 1992 - Journal of Business Ethics 11 (12):961 - 979.
    In this paper, we explore whether the ethical positions of students are firmly entrenched when they enter college, or do they change due to maturity, experience to ethical discussions in coursework, work experience, or a combination of factors. This study compared the ethical attitudes of freshmen and junior accounting majors, and graduate MBA students when confronted with two ethical dilemmas. Undergraduates were found to be more justice oriented than their MBA counterparts, who were more utilitarian in their ethical approach. While (...)

    Business students and ethics: A meta-analysis. [REVIEW]Susan C. Borkowski & Yusuf J. Ugras - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (11):1117-1127.
    Given the proliferation of research regarding the ethical development of students in general, and business students in particular, it is difficult to draw conclusions from the contradictory results of many studies. In this meta-analysis of empirical studies from 1985 through 1994, the relationships of gender, age and undergraduate major to the ethical attitudes and behavior of business students are analyzed. The results indicate that female students exhibit stronger ethical attitudes than males. The same is also true for older versus younger (...)

    Ethical practice in the accounting publishing process: Contrasting opinions of authors and editors. [REVIEW]Susan C. Borkowski & Mary Jeanne Welsh - 2000 - Journal of Business Ethics 25 (1):15 - 31.
    Academic accounting researchers often offer anecdotal evidence that the publishing process is rife with unfair and unethical practices, and similar contradictory evidence supports accounting journal editors' claims that the process is fair and ethical. This study compares the perceptions of accounting authors and editors on the ethicacy and frequency of specific author, editor and reviewer practices. Both authors and editors are in general agreement about the ethical nature of editors and author practices. However, there are significant differences between the groups (...)

    Ethics and the accounting publishing process: Author, reviewer, and editor issues. [REVIEW]Susan C. Borkowski & Mary Jeanne Welsh - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (16):1785-1803.
    Are codes of ethics needed to guide author, reviewer and editor publishing practices in accounting journals? What practices are considered unethical, and to what extend do they occur? A survey of ninety-five journal editors who publish accounting articles rated author, reviewer and editor practices as ethical or unethical, and estimated the frequency with which these practices occur. Respondents also commented on current publishing practices regarding the double-blind review process, payments for reviews, confirmatory bias, and whether codes of ethics are needed (...)
