The Journal of Bioethical Inquiry is a forum for discussing and debating ethical, cultural and social issues arising in medicine, the health sciences and health care in general. Coverage includes core areas of conventional bioethics, such as research, clinical practice and medical technology. The journal also addresses questions of pressing contemporary relevance, such as the implications of current world events for the health of populations, and critical analyses of specific social policies around the world and their likely impact on health and welfare and systems of power.

In addition to original research, regular features include: New developments; Reader Response; and case scenarios with commentaries.

The Journal of Bioethical Inquiry is an official partner journal of the American Society for Humanities + Bioethics:
