Jahr – European Journal of Bioethics announces a call for submission of papers, open all year long.

Jahr deals with a wide range of bioethical topics. The aim of the Editorial Board is to publish papers related to bioethics in social sciences (sociology, psychology, law, political science, information and communication sciences, pedagogy, education and rehabilitation sciences, speech-language pathology, kinesiology, demography, social activities, security and defence sciences, economics), humanities (philosophy, theology, philology, history, art history, archaeology, ethnology and anthropology, religious sciences), biomedicine (medicine, public health, veterinary medicine, dentistry and pharmacology) and papers related to bioethics and Artificial inteligence.

The journal is published twice a year, by the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Social Sciences and Medical Humanities, Croatia and University of Rijeka, “Fritz Jahr” Documentation and Research Centre for European Bioethics, Croatia. The first issue of each volume is published by the end of June, and the second by the end of December. By consenting to publish their paper in Jahr, the authors give the journal the right of first publication in both, printed and electronic format. Authors can republish their works in other publications, provided they cite the data regarding paper’s first publication in Jahr.

We accept paper submissions all year long. Submitted papers undergo a double-blind peer review process. In case reviewers’ decisions conflict, the paper is reviewed by the third reviewer. The final decision on the publication of papers is made by Editorial Board. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. There are no charges for the submission and/or publication of papers in Jahr.

Papers which are positively evaluated can be classified according to the following categorization:

- Original Scientific Articles

- Preliminary Communications

- Review Articles

- Professional Articles

The Journal also publishes book reviews (extending to publication not older than three years), reports and announcements of upcoming bioethics events (public lectures, book promotions, scientific conferences, etc.).
