BioéthiqueOnline is a bilingual (French and English), international, open access and free-to-publish online peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes theoretical, conceptual and empirical research in bioethics. The journal is a collaborative endeavour between the Bioethics Program and the Bioethics Student Association (AÉBiUM) at the University of Montreal, and uses a completely online platform to bring together scholarly and professional resources to help foster the development of a robust and collaborative bioethics community across Quebec, but also more generally in Canada and internationally.

The aim of the journal is to provide a space for the publication of high quality and thought-provoking bioethics scholarship of diverse forms (e.g., articles, commentaries, reviews, editorials, debate pieces, case studies) and from across the full range of specialties in the field (e.g., clinical ethics, research ethics, public health ethics, technology ethics, professional ethics). We take the view that Bioethics is not a discipline – even if it has a specialised body of knowledge and literature – and is instead an interdisciplinary field of study that includes, but is not limited to, the work of scholars specialised in bioethics, health sciences, management, law, humanities, social sciences, etc.

BioéthiqueOnline thus welcomes submissions from students, professionals and researchers from across the full spectrum of academic and professional disciplines who are interested in participating in the development of a bilingual, international bioethics community. The journal welcomes submissions that might not otherwise be publishable in US or European bioethics journals because of the language (e.g., in French), jurisdictional context (e.g., specific national issues or cases), form or subject matter (e.g., using diverse theoretical frameworks or applying novel methods).
