The Rutgers Journal of Bioethics is an undergraduate journal exploring the intersection of ethics, biology, society, public health, and public policy. Published each year since 2009, the Journal is staffed by undergraduate students at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick and is funded through generous contributions from the Rutgers University Student Assembly Allocations Board.

The student staff publishes the Journal annually during the spring semester and welcomes a wide array of works that fall under the vast umbrella of bioethics—original essays, editorials, book reviews, and art. All persons wishing to participate in this open discussion are encouraged to submit their work, including undergraduate students, graduate students, and professors from Rutgers as well as other institutions. For written works, please share your article as a Google Document (.doc/.docx) in double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-pt. font, and format citations using the stylistic guidelines published by the American Psychological Association (APA format). Please include the article title, institutional affiliation, abstract, email, and phone number with your submission. To be considered for inclusion in the Journal, please share your writing or high-resolution image of your work of art via email (
