Call for Papers: new issues in bioethics

The Hastings Center Report Last Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions is August 15th

“Don’t miss a unique opportunity to voice your opinion on the future of bioethics and get published in the leading journal devoted to the ethical issues surrounding health, medicine, and the environment.

To mark the fortieth anniversary of the Hastings Center Report, we are looking forward. Rather than commemorate the issues and authors that the Report has published in the past, we want to know from you what issues bioethics should be looking at in the future!

Gregory E. Kaebnick, editor of the Hastings Center Report, is looking to the next generation for these answers. “We’ll throw the doors open: we’ll read anything that any student, graduate fellow, or untenured professor in bioethics sends us (current or former Center staff excluded), and we’ll publish the best of the lot in the November-December 2010 issue.”

Essays might call for new ways of doing bioethics or examine the implications of trends within the general categories that the Center now addresses-clinical care, public health, health policy, new technologies, and medical research. Essays might also identify underexamined topics within these categories.

Published since 1970, the Hastings Center Report is read by physicians, nurses, lawyers, research administrators, social workers, clergy, policy-makers, and scholars in a wide range of disciplines who are drawn to the mix of clinical case studies, research reports, and essays on issues in medicine, health care, public health, and the life sciences.

The essays should be 1,600 words and submitted to by August 15, 2010.”
