Bioethics Research Resources

If you are looking for ways to access bioethics literature, here are several options that I have found to be useful.

1. Your university/institutional library:
If you are affiliated with a university or other institution that has access to online research tools, then your library will You can search for ethics resources in the same way that you would search for any other resources in Ovid. I usually search for a topic (such as “informed consent” or “access to medicine”) and then also search for “ethics” and map the two together. Most major journals include ethical topics in their scope of interest. Depending on the level of accessibility that your institution provides, you may have full text access to these articles.

4. Project MUSE (“full text, affordable access to current content from prestigious humanities and social sciences journals”)
6. Ethic Share – this search engine for ethics papers was recently launched. It has a great collection of sources. It is designed to link into your institution’s library system, which is quite handy.
7. HighWire Press (Stanford) – Access to free online full text articles. According to its site “HighWire Press is the largest archive of free full-text science on Earth.” Not all articles are free, but many are, so it’s worth taking a look.
Good luck with your research!
