Twenty five years ago, the terms “nanomedicine,” “neuroethics,” and “global health law” did not exist. The Human Genome Project had not yet begun, and most human subjects research took place in North America and Europe. No World Wide Web or open access journals existed. All that has changed. As part of the new wave, Dove Press is launching a new journal, Medicolegal and Bioethics as an online, open-access, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary and international journal we aim to meet rigorous intellectual standards, yet deliver content rapidly. The journal will grow from cross-fertilization and creative tension not only among disciplines but also among cultures.
