The field of bioethics and health care ethics, like most other biomedical disciplines, has grown rapidly over the past 15 to 20 years. This is clearly evidenced by the rapid growth of the literature. The most recent Kennedy Institute Scope Note on "Basic Resources in Bioethics" (published in the first issue of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal) lists 14 core bioethics journals, not including the two reviewed here. These titles include well-established and highly respected journals like the Hastings Center Report, American Journal of Law and Medicine, Journal of Clinical Ethics, and Linacre Quarterly. Reviews of two other excellent new journals in this field appeared in JAMA during the past year.1,2
