The Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal announces a special emergency, open-access issue on Ethics, Pandemics, and COVID-19.
Papers from 3,000-12,000 words on ethical issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic are invited. Papers are welcome on
- Resource allocation
- Duties towards the vulnerable
- Rights to privacy and mobility
- Pandemics and xenophobia
- Ethical and existential significance of social distancing
- Any other ethical issues (in a broad sense of ethics) raised by the pandemic
In keeping with the mission of the journal, they wish to publish papers that are practically relevant and engaged as well as conceptually rigorous. They are aiming for an extremely fast turn around. Submissions will be reviewed in-house at Georgetown University for speed, and they will receive at least one anonymous review, so this will count as an anonymous peer reviewed article for curriculum vitae purposes.
They are aiming for online publication by midsummer, to come out in print as their September issue. Please direct any questions to Editor-in-Chief Quill Kukla at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Acting Editor Travis Rieder at email@example.com. Papers may be submitted through the KIEJ usual submission portal. Deadline for submissions is May 15, 2020.
