Journal: Philosophy of Medicine

Philosophy of Medicine is an open-access journal that publishes exceptional original philosophical research and perspectives on all aspects of medicine, including medical research and practices. Through its public-facing section The Examination Room, it also publishes content for the wider public, including health professionals and health scientists.

The mission of Philosophy of Medicine is to serve as the flagship journal for the field by advancing research in philosophy of medicine, by engaging widely with medicine, health sciences and the public, and by providing open-access content for all without charging authors publication fees.

The Journal was started in 2020 by Alex Broadbent (Editor in Chief) and Jonathan Fuller (Deputy Editor in Chief). It is generously supported by Pittsburgh Center for Philosophy of Science, the University of Johannesburg Faculty of Humanities, and Durham University's Department of Philosophy.
