Last week we went to press with our first issue of 2014: "The Right Not to Know" guest edited by Bartha Maria Knoppers. The issue discusses the evolving situation from research subjects' right to know research results to the right not to know, how that decision impacts family members and next of kin, what researchers should do in these situations, and other related, ethical questions. We hope it continues discussion on this topic of whether, when, and under which circumstances such a right exists.
Our independent articles cover topics on public health law emergencies, global health, and issues in health care and hospitals.
You can find the issue online here, and in the next few weeks, hard copies will be mailed out as well.
Thank you for your support of JLME. Enjoy the first issue!
