Bioethics Special Issue
Publication February 2017
(Online Publication 2016)
Guest Editors: Annette Rid, Seema Shah
CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 20th April 2015
The Editors of Bioethics are pleased to announce a special issue in 2016 on the social value of research. Social value is widely accepted, but rarely questioned as a benchmark of ethical research. International and national research ethics guidelines and regulations presume that the value of research to society is critically important for selecting study populations, justifying risk imposition, and determining the acceptable level of net risk. Yet, there is a limited amount of scholarship exploring what the “social value requirement” entails or what its normative status should be in research ethics.
We invite submissions on all aspects of this topic. Questions include but are not limited to:
The editors welcome early discussion of brief proposals and/or abstracts by email to: Annette Rid, Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine, King’s College London, firstname.lastname@example.org or Seema Shah, Department of Bioethics, The Clinical Center, U.S. National Institutes of Health, email@example.com.
Upon submission authors should include full contact details and a few lines of biographical information in a separate electronic file. We discourage papers of more than 5000 words.
For further submission requirements, format and referencing style, refer to the Author Guidelines on the Bioethics website: http://www.wiley.com/bw/journal.asp?ref=0269-9702
Manuscripts should be submitted to Bioethics online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/biot.
Please ensure that you select manuscript type ‘Special Issue’ and state that it is for the Social Value Special Issue when prompted.
