By Robin Lynn Miller - "Medical ethics has long been associated with the investigation of moral questions arising at the two boundaries of human existence. We have long studied end-of-life dilemmas as well as issues in neonatal intensive care units. A very small portion of the human lifespan is spent in the birthing and dying process, yet medical ethicists and educators continue to focus much of their attention there. What lies in between is ripe territory for further ethical attention and deliberation."
Journal of Medical Ethics
First published in 1975, Journal of Medical Ethics has become a leading international journal, which reflects the whole field of medical ethics. Contributions to the journal originate in many countries and disciplines, and all undergo rigorous assessment. The journal features original articles on ethical aspects of health care, as well as case conferences, book reviews, editorials, correspondence, news and notes. Occasional series focus on teaching medical ethics, experiences of medico-moral dilemmas (At the Coalface - Medical Ethics in Practice) and medical ethics in literature.
Founded in 1993 as the first bioethics website, bioethics.net and The American Journal of Bioethics (AJOB) have grown to become the most read source of information about bioethics, visited millions of times every month by readers from around the world and every walk of life.
