Scope

Christian Bioethics is a non-ecumenical, interdenominational journal, exploring the Christian faiths with regard to the meaning of human life, sexuality, suffering, illness, and death within the context of medicine and health care. Christian Bioethics seeks not to gloss over the differences among the Christian faiths, but rather to underscore the content-full moral commitments that separate and give moral substance. It is interdenominational in involving editors and inviting contributions from different Christian perspectives. The Journal will seek to be fresh, novel, critical, and controversial by taking the content of Christianity seriously, while frankly assessing how different Christian faiths and different policies authentically realize that content with respect to bioethical issues. This non-ecumenical approach to Christian bioethics, guided by the usual secular scholarly standards, offers a forum for the extended and vigorous exploration of issues at the interface of theology, moral theory, and health care. Within the framework of traditional Christian moral commitments, contemporary bioethical and health care policy issues will be examined, such as abortion, the allocation of scarce resources, the character of appropriate hospital chaplaincy, fetal experimentation, fetal tissue in treatment, genetic engineering, the use of critical care units, differences between ordinary and extraordinary treatment, euthanasia, free and informed consent, competency determinations, the meaning of mental illness, the significance of pain, suffering, death, and third-party assisted reproduction.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
