A Call for Submissions!
The Ivy Journal of Ethics is an annual journal of applied bioethics published by the Bioethics Society of Cornell. Research and discussion based articles are published primarily from undergraduate students at schools throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. In the past, we have also published submissions from notable faculty members, such as Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann. It has been well received by noted Bioethicists such as Dr. Atul Gawande of Brigham and Women’s Hospital/ Harvard Medical School. For past editions of the Ivy Journal of Ethics, please visit our website: www.rso.cornell.edu/bsc.
We are currently accepting submissions for the Spring 2010 edition of the Journal. Past volumes have contained an array of issues, from xenotransplantation, stem cell research, abortion, and in vitro fertilization to matters concerning doping in athletics and bioterrorism. In our past issue, we focused on genomics, personalized medicine, and gene therapy as well as its ethical implications of this technology on medicine, research, and society. For the Spring 2010 edition, we are particularly interested in submissions that explore topics related to clinical research ethics, with an emphasis on the use of human subjects in medical research. This also includes issues of privacy, informed consent, and exploration of potential conflicts of interest. In addition, we would be delighted to receive submissions on any other topics related to bioethics for inclusion in our journal.
Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com by Monday, April 12, 2010. Please do not submit manuscripts that have been or will be up for publication in any other journal.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
