The Canadian Journal of Bioethics is a peer-reviewed, bilingual (French and English), international, open access academic journal that publishes theoretical, conceptual and empirical research in bioethics. The aim of the journal is to provide a space for the publication of high quality and thought provoking bioethics scholarship of diverse forms (e.g., articles, commentaries, book reviews, editorials, debate pieces, case studies) and from across the full range of specialties in the field (e.g., clinical ethics, research ethics, public health ethics, technology ethics, professional ethics). The journal welcomes submissions that might not otherwise be publishable in US or European bioethics journals because of the language (e.g., in French), jurisdictional context (e.g., specific national issues or cases), form or subject matter (e.g., using diverse theoretical frameworks or applying novel methods).
