Where research meets real life

How many of us have been sought out by a colleague, friend, or child making a difficult decision or processing a challenging event, and jumped in immediately with our own experience, advice, and judgment?

Simple, silent listening is extremely difficult, but crucial to understanding and effective leadership–in families and organizations alike. So it’s with particular pride that we are able to publish the only academic journal in bioethics that includes first-person narratives, enhancing research in a wide variety of areas: from psychiatric hospitalization to organ transplantation to autism spectrum disorders.  Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics: A Journal of Qualitative Research is truly where research meets real life.

In a recent interview, editors James DuBois and Ana Iltis discuss the importance of hearing authentic human voices in shaping public policy. Have a listen.
