Call for papers ‘Bioethics’ guest-edited by Annette Rid and Seema Shah: The Social Value of Research: Conflicts between science, society, and individuals

The Editors of Bioethics are pleased to announce a special issue in 2016 on the social value of research.

 Guest Editors: Dr Annette Rid, Dr Seema Shah

Social value is widely accepted, but rarely questioned as a benchmark of ethical research. International and national research ethics guidelines and regulations presume that the value of research to society is critically important for selecting study populations, justifying risk imposition, and determining the acceptable level of net risk. Yet, there is a limited amount of scholarship exploring what the “social value requirement” entails or what its normative status should be in research ethics.

Closing date for submissions: 2nd November 2015

Publication: April 2016

We invite submissions on all aspects of this topic. The editors welcome early discussion of brief proposals and/or abstracts by email to: Annette Rid, Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine, King’s College London, or Seema Shah, Department of Bioethics, The Clinical Center, U.S. National Institutes of Health,
