Ethics is an academic journal established in 1890 as the International Journal of Ethics, renamed in 1938, and published since 1923 by the University of Chicago Press. The journal covers scholarly work in moral, political, and legal philosophy from a variety of intellectual perspectives, including social and political theory, law, and economics. Ethics publishes both theory and application of theory to contemporary moral issues, and accepts historical essays, provided they have significant implications for contemporary theory. Ethics also publishes review essays, discussion articles, and book reviews. The journal frequently publishes work from contributors outside the United States, and work that draws on more than one disciplinary approach.

Ethics is noteworthy for its well-blinded review process. Authors are not told the names of external reviewers, nor are external reviewers told the names of authors. Furthermore, editors are unable to see the authors' names when screening papers, or voting on papers put forward by handling editors.
