The Center for Bioethics is pleased to announce the launch of a new, peer-reviewed academic journal: Bioethics in Faith and Practice.
The focus of the new journal is Health Care Ethics, but it also may include articles of a more theoretical nature. Though it will emphasize Judeo-Christian values, we will be open to a large variety of voices, including secular ones. The first issue is now available online, at: http://digitalcommons.cedarville.edu/bioethics_in_faith_and_practice/.
Both academic and clinical scholars should consider submitting to the new journal. Submissions may include case study analysis or longer commentaries and reviews. Appropriate clinical ethics topics may also include reproductive ethics, end-of-life matters, stem cell research, abortion, genetic ethics, research ethics, and conscience rights for health professionals. We are open to more theoretical matters as well, such as nuances of ethical theory, meta-ethics, and metaphysics as it relates to human nature. The perspective may be from medicine, nursing, biology, pharmaceutical sciences, psychology, social work, chaplaincy, and biblical scholarship.
Articles submitted for consideration should be of interest to the educated professional, but not restricted to the specialist. An author need not be a full-time academic of a member of a college or university faculty. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the Editorial Advisory Board, made up of ten Cedarville University faculty, plus six from outside the institution.
