About Us

Voices in Bioethics: An Online Journal focuses exclusively on the pressing bioethical issues of our time.  Our publications explore, articulate, and analyze domestic and global ethical issues found throughout the intersection of medicine, law, philosophy, public health and technology. Moreover, Voices in Bioethics presents theoretical and empirical scholarship and discussion in a variety of formats, from opinion editorials ("op-eds"), research papers, and media and art reviews to interviews with the foremost experts and luminaries in the field of bioethics. Voices in Bioethics also features an ongoing Newswire blog that prompts discussion of the latest and most pressing bioethical issues in the news. Our contributors are a diverse group of health professionals, researchers, philosophers, professors, and graduate students -- all of whom welcome considerate feedback from readers.
