Welcome to the Penn Bioethics Journal

The Penn Bioethics Journal (PBJ) is the nation’s premier peer-reviewed, undergraduate bioethics journal. Established in 2004, the Journal features and provides a venue for the contributions of undergraduates to bioethics. PBJ, embracing the interdisciplinary focus of bioethics, reviews and publishes reports of empirical research and analysis of previous work— addressing debates in medicine, technology, philosophy, public policy, law, theology, and ethics, among other disciplines. The biannual issues also feature news briefs and editorials reviewing current issues in the field, as summarized by our editorial staff. Editors and authors have a unique opportunity to get involved with the peer-review process through the collaborative and rigorous review and preparation of the Journal. With an audience ranging from scholars in the field to a broader public seeking unbiased information, PBJ scholastically involves all undergraduates interested in the extensive field of bioethics.
