In developing the Thesaurus Ethics in the Life Sciences the project partners have broken new ground in several regards. Compared with existing thesauri in the field of bioethics, the new Thesaurus adopts a much broader thematic approach. With its 14 subject areas the Thesaurus goes beyond the human fields of bioethics and medical ethics and also covers non-human fields, such as animal ethics, environmental ethics, agriculture, genetic engineering and biotechnology. It is the first thesaurus to unite the great variety of bioethical fields that are playing an ever increasing part in the bioethics debate.
The project, which was initiated by the DRZE in 1999, brings together five partners who decided to pool their professional experience with various thesauri in order to create a new Thesaurus Ethics in the Life Sciences. This new Thesaurus is intended as the first integrated, multilingual, controlled indexing and research tool to include new fields of bioethics which, until now, were treated either marginally or not at all. The Thesaurus provides adequate coverage of current developments in bioethics – a field of science characterised by heterogeneity and multidisciplinarity – in the international context and should prove useful in making literature indexing and research more efficient and consequently more professional. The various functional features of the Thesaurus are mainly geared to the needs of the two major target groups: researchers – both experts and interested members of the public – as well as librarians and information specialists indexing bioethical literature and documents.
