EthxWeb: Literature in Bioethics
EthxWeb consolidates interdisciplinary bioethics material from 1974 to 2009. A useful resource for those interested in researching materials in an extensive range of bioethics topics, EthxWeb contains journal articles, book chapters, bills, laws, court decisions, reports, books, audiovisuals, and news articles.
EthxWeb includes the BIOETHICSLINE database records created by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics for the U.S. National Library of Medicine from 1975 to 2000, and PubMed bioethics subset records from 2000 to 2006. While records were added to EthxWeb until 2012, the database is comprehensively curated for the 25 years from 1974 to 2009.
This resource is maintained by the Bioethics Research Library, Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University.
