Author Guidelines

Manuscript submissions are encouraged from all responsible contributors regardless of affiliation with the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. The journal solicits in-depth articles (8,000-12,000 words) that combine detailed conceptual analysis with practical engagement. While we accept papers in all areas of bioethics, we are especially interested in publishing papers that explore ethical and social issues in science practice, and/or philosophical approaches to health, environmental, and science policy, especially those which situate philosophical and ethical issues in a global context.

Authors can visit the link to find additional information about submission guidelines. All manuscripts should be prepared for blind review with an abstract of 100-150 words, saved in *.doc or *.docx format, and submitted separately from author information (gathered at a separate stage in the online process). Manuscripts already under consideration at another journal will not be considered.
