Annals of Bioethics
Published/Hosted by Taylor and Francis Group.
Discontinued in 2004. Through foundational philosophical, religious, and cultural perspectives, clinical case studies, and legal analysis, the Annals of Bioethics documents, reviews, and explores emerging bioethical viewpoints as well as the state-of-the-art of this global endeavor. Issues will explore, document, and critically appreciate diverse legal, moral, cultural, and religious viewpoints representing the various regions of the world, from mainland China and Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, India and East Asia more generally, to Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, to South America and North America. Moral perspectives range from Orthodox Christianity, Roman Catholicism, and contemporary Protestant Christianity, to Orthodox, Conservative and Reformed Judaism, to Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and so forth, to secular liberalism. The goal of the journal is to document and review the often widely varying bioethical perspectives reflected throughout the international community's regions, religions, laws and policies. The Annals of Bioethics compasses updates in moral theory, normative health care practice, case studies, public policy, and document and assess legal, religious and cultural responses to specific aspects of the fast paced developments in health care and medical technology. Areas to be explored include such contentious issues as abortion, euthanasia, prenatal genetic screening, parental discretion regarding treatment of neonates, genetic engineering, stem cell research, sex reassignment surgery, reproductive technologies, and cloning, as well as the permissible foundations and limits of biomedical ethics and health care policy, among others.
