The October issue of AJOB is here!

This month’s issue includes a target article on whether or not to disclose research results from whole-exome sequencing to relatives of a family member who has died.  Such topics as genetic privacy, a duty to warn, policies in place to regulate such disclosure, clinical significance and boundaries come to the fore in light of this discussion.

Our second target article tackles surrogate decision making in the internet age.  Such concepts as social media and identity, the function of social media in decision-making, potential hazards and the online availability of one’s preferences are considered.
