Kahn, Tamar Joy
Goldstein, Doris Mueller
This volume of the Bibliography cites 8,779 documents (primarily in English) that discuss ethical and related public policy aspects of the topics and subtopics listed above. Documents cited in this volume include journal and newspaper articles, laws, court decisions, monographs, and chapters in books. Most of the documents listed were published since 2004. In the Periodical Literature and Essays section, for example, 3,874 of the 8,117 entries were published in 2006; 1,822 in 2005; and 582 in 2004; therefore, 77 per cent of the literature cited in Section I was published since 2004. The literature of bioethics appears in widely scattered sources and is reported in diverse indexes which employ a bewildering variety of subject headings. This annual Bibliography is the product of a unique information retrieval system designed to identify the central issues of bioethics, to develop a subject classification scheme appropriate to the field, and to provide comprehensive, cross-disciplinary coverage of current English-language materials on bioethical topics.
