The New Bioethics

With effect from Volume 18, The New Bioethics is the title for the successor to Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics (HRGE).

The New Bioethics seeks to reclaim bioethics as a diverse and multidisciplinary project. It provides a space for dialogue between different perspectives on biotechnology and offers the chance to find new kinds of common ground. The journal invites contributions from a range of perspectives, from the social and political sciences, from feminist perspectives, from the traditions of European Continental philosophy, Anglo-American analytic philosophy and Eastern philosophies and diverse religious perspectives.

The journal is not concerned primarily with the traditional professional ethics of doctors such as confidentiality and data protection, but will focus specifically on the interface of technology and the human body. It covers issues such as assisted reproduction, genetics, regenerative medicine (including the use of stem cells), cognitive enhancement and those technologies that have allowed human tissue to be taken, stored, manipulated and used for biomedical purposes.
