We co-own two journals with BMJ Publishing, the Journal of Medical Ethics and Medical Humanities. IME members receive copies of both journals as part of their membership benefits which works out significantly cheaper than subscribing directly to the journals.

Journal of Medical Ethics

The Journal of Medical Ethics is a leading international journal that reflects the whole field of medical ethics. The journal seeks to promote ethical reflection and conduct in scientific research and medical practice.

It features original articles on ethical aspects of health care, as well as case conferences, book reviews, editorials, correspondence, news and notes. To ensure international relevance, the JME has Editorial Board members from all around the world including the US, Europe, Australasia and the Far East.

Subscribers to the Journal of Medical Ethics also receive Medical Humanities journal at no extra cost. The JME is the official journal of the Institute of Medical Ethics.

We have a panel of interested individuals that comment on Feature Articles within the JME. If you are interested in joining this panel please click here.

Medical Humanities

Medical Humanities presents the international conversation around medicine and its engagement with the humanities and arts, social sciences, health policy, medical education, patient experience and the public at large. Led by Dr Brandy Schillace, the journal publishes scholarly and critical articles on a broad range of topics. These include history of medicine, cultures of medicine, disability studies, gender and the body, communities in crisis, bioethics, and public health.

Excited to announce our next issue and a supplemental special issue on Global Health Humanities!
