Voices in Bioethics Call for Submissions Winter 2014 Issue
Voices in Bioethics is an academic platform for mobilizing research and discussion that speaks to a wide range of scholars in bioethics. Given that bioethical issues arise at all levels of society, the journal encourages multi-disciplinary debate on such issues and aims to shed light on medical health concerns. While Voices in Bioethics embraces submissions across a range of research perspectives, it especially encourages work that develops social, cultural, and critical understandings of bioethical theory and practice. Voices in Bioethics seeks innovative, creative perspectives and forms of writing, and welcomes new challenges.
The journal welcomes the following types of submissions:
- Research articles incorporating substantive findings and promoting critical scholarship. Voices in Bioethics is especially open to articles that encourage or incorporate new ways of thinking about theory, research policy, and practice in health care. We limit most articles to a maximum of 7,500 words, including title page, abstract, notes, references, data, etc. However, the editors recognize that some forms of research will require more space to incorporate adequate data.
- Conceptual essays and diverse literary forms of writing relating to bioethics with a maximum limit of 7,000 words.
- Short theoretical essays or op-ed pieces in the range of 1,000-3,000 words, addressing current issues, topics, and debates.
- Media and Book Reviews, in which literature, film, television, and other media are analyzed through a bioethical lens, thus providing further understanding of how we are confronted with these issues in our daily lives. The maximum limit for these review pieces is 1,500 words.
- Analyses of art in its many forms, which focus on how art and bioethics can intersect in the most interesting ways possible. These pieces are limited to 2,000 words.
- Narratives and stories of medicine and clinical practice, such as oral histories, first-person accounts, and interviews. Our new Narrative Medicine and Ethics section serves as a space for interdisciplinary work investigating important intersections of medicine, healthcare, and well-being, with writing, literature, philosophy, and progressive thinking.
