Call for Papers: Journal of Bioethical Inquiry
The JBI welcomes both reports of empirical research and articles that increase the theoretical understanding of medicine and health care, the health professions, and the biological sciences. The JBI is also open to critical reflections on medicine and conventional bioethics; the nature of health, illness, and disability; the sources of ethics; the nature of ethical communities; possible implications of new developments in science and technology for social and cultural life and human identity; and the impact of social policies and current world events on health, welfare, and systems of power. We welcome contributions from perspectives that are less commonly published in existing journals in the field as well as studies using qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies.
Contributions discussing bioethical issues in different geographical and cultural settings are welcomed and encouraged.
In addition to original research, each issue of the JBI includes a symposium edited by guest scholars focusing on a specific bioethical topic as well as regular features such as: Editorials; Letters to the Editor; Critical Perspectives; Recent Developments (particularly in law); Book, Film, and Art Reviews; and Case Studies to which readers respond and comment.
The JBI accepts contributions from authors working in or across disciplines, including—but not limited to—the following:
Philosophy, Bioethics, Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Disability Studies, Economics, Environmental Sciences, Feminism, Gay and Lesbian Studies, History, Law, Linguistics and Discourse Analysis, Literature and Literary Studies, Psychology, Public Health and Epidemiology, Social Theory, and Theology and Religious Studies
