The Journal of Human Values provides an understanding of how in order for individuals, organizations and societies to endure and function effectively, it is essential that an individual's positive exalting forces be rediscovered and revitalized.
The Journal of Human Values addresses the impact of human values along a variety of dimensions: the relevance of human values in today's world; human values at the organizational level; and the culture-specificity of human values.
The journal provides an international forum for the exchange of ideas, principles and processes concerning the application of human values to organizations, institutions and the world at large. It addresses the historico-social origins and the cross-fertilization between culture since many operational human values are clearly culture-specific.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Journal of Human Values is available electronically on SAGE Journals Online at http://jhv.sagepub.com
