Penn Bioethics Journal
The Penn Bioethics Journal is the nation's premier peer-reviewed undergraduate bioethics journal. The journal was established in Spring, 2004 with the first issue published April 1, 2005 as part of the National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference hosted by Penn. The editorial board has included undergraduates from all four schools at the University of Pennsylvania with faculty advisors Jonathan D. Moreno, Ph.D. and Connie Ulrich, Ph.D., R.N. The editors select a theme for each biannual issue of the journal. The theme of the journal is not decided until after all the articles are submitted and normally features an Editorial or Paper. Submissions are not required to correspond to the selected theme. Additionally, many issues of the journal feature one or more interviews with prominent professionals in fields related to the issue theme. Our acceptance process is very competitive with submissions undergoing an initial review, a small group review, and a final review by the full editorial board of approximately 40 students.
