We are the leading journal in the field of bioethics, passionate about studying ethical issues raised by advances in biology and medicine. We discuss here on our website every topic pertaining to such interdisciplinary fields which includes philosophy, law, medicine, and the social sciences. We publish original articles that explore domestic and global ethical challenges in healthcare, medicine, public health, and the life sciences. We produce informative content per year, featuring peer-reviewed Academic Objectives, Articles, Open Peer Review Editorials, Book Reviews, and Case Studies in Clinical Nursing and Research Ethics.
The social implications of biomedicine and biotechnology are far-reaching and complex. Here, we explore some of the major ethical issues raised by biomedical advances, including stem cell research, cloning, genetic engineering, and pharmaceuticals. We also discuss the social impact of these technologies on our healthcare system, our economy, and our relationships with each other and other species.
Our contributors come from a wide range of professions and disciplines, providing authoritatively annotated conversations that have been used by judges, politicians, journalists, academics, teachers, and millions of others as a key source on thousands of topics in the health sciences. We implement an innovative vision for building bioethics: a serious discussion of the societal implications of biomedicine.
