    Exploring Ethical Issues Using Personal Interviews.Jeanne M. Liedtka - 1992 - Business Ethics Quarterly 2 (2):161-181.
    This paper argues that the personal interview method is particularly appropriate for the kind of exploratory and complicated theory-buiIding research that ethical decision-making, as a topic, represents at present.
