Tom Basuray, William P. Smith, Donald Kopka & Donald McCulloh - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 77 (4):417-430.
    In this study, we examined moral issues and gender differences in ethical judgment using Reidenbach and Robin’s [Journal of Business Ethics9 (1990) 639) multidimensional ethics scale (MES). A total of 340 undergraduate students were asked to provide ethical judgment by rating three moral issues in the MES labeled: ‚sales’, ‚auto’, and ‚retail’ using three ethics theories: moral equity, relativism, and contractualism. We found that female students’ ratings of ethical judgment were consistently higher than that of male students across two out (...)

    Teaching a Business Ethics Course Using Team Debates.Nhung T. Hendy, M. Tom Basuray & William P. Smith - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 14:5-22.
    In this study, we explored student team debates as a tool in teaching a business ethics course using a sample of upper level undergraduate business students enrolled in two sections of a business ethics course in the U.S. Eight teams each consisting of 4-5 students debated four topics throughout the spring semester of 2016.

    Lest We Forget: Tenure and the Psychological Contract.Deborah L. Kidder, William P. Smith & Barrie E. Litzky - 2009 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 20:357-363.
    Psychological contracts represent perceived reciprocal obligations between an employer and an employee. Most research has focused on employee or employer rights (the entitlement side of the obligation equation). We examine the responsibilities inherent in psychological contracts. After reviewing the moral aspect of psychological contracts, we use the issue of tenure as a discussion point for this topic.

    Slave to Facebook? How Technology is Changing the Balance Between Right to Privacy and Right to Know.Deborah L. Kidder & William P. Smith - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:52-61.
    Have social media sites like Facebook become such a significant part of our social fabric that people face negative consequences for not joining and sharing? What role does a right to privacy play in circumstances where self-disclosure is the norm? We surveyed students about teammate preferences for team members based on information availability and Facebook membership. Students report a strong preference for teammates for whom there is information and Facebook participation.

Trek’s benefit corporation status helped it garner favorable attention in some respects, but has also presented challenges, particularly when it comes to attracting new capital.

    Understanding the “Social License to Operate”.William P. Smith - 2010 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 21:223-230.
    The Barrick Gold Company of Toronto is currently seeking to develop one of the largest gold reserves in the world. The project is called “Pascua Lama” and rather dramatically contrasts Barrick’s interests against a coalition of environmental and community activists. This paper describes the basics of gold mining, the Barrick Gold Company, the primary arguments in favor and against the Pascua Lama project. These elements are instructive examples of critical concepts such as stakeholder engagement, legitimacy and sustainability. In addition to (...)

    You’ve Been Tagged! (Then Again, Maybe Not).William P. Smith - 2008 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 19:35-42.
