Section Editor

Aliya Affdal (


The Commentary section has attracted much attention since the launch of the journal. In 2015, we began publishing both short critical essays and responses to previously published texts. These critical responses allow for a more transparent recognition of different standpoints essential to open discussion. To better recognize the different styles of commentaries that we publish, we will now differentiate between peer-reviewed “Critical Commentaries” and editor-reviewed “Response to” texts. The former will provide timely critical reflection on current issues, while the latter will focus on engagement with publications from BioéthiqueOnline. Both types of publication should be brief, concise and not exceed 2000 words.

You are invited to submit a manuscrit on a topic of your choice at any time.
