ETHXWEb

Comprises an index of " journal articles, book chapters, bills, laws, court decisions, reports, books, audiovisuals, and news relating to bioethics and professional ethics." (Publisher's website). Maintained by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University, this resource has very limited full text accessibility (for non-Georgetown University users). Good source for citations to research literature of bioethics and professional ethics. But in most cases, accessing the text will require consulting other resources. Results processing options are limited; either save all results from search or print all results...no email option is available. The save results option is difficult to use. Despite its quirks, however, researchers requiring comprehensive bibliographies of research literature for work in the areas of professional and bioethics will want to consult this resource. Began in the 1970's under the title BIOETHICSLINE. Some retrospective journal coverage goes back to 1947
