Special Publications

 

Special Reports to the Hastings Center Report are one venue in which the Center publishes the results of its research projects. Reports may be single-authored or collections of essays prepared by members of project working groups, consensus documents, or lively conversations among those who reached differing moral conclusions about a project's central questions.

Essay sets organized around topical issues in bioethics appear periodically in the Hastings Center Report. They consist of commentaries, analyses, and journalistic reporting that provide depth and perspective on bioethics developments in the news.

Bound, hard copies of special publications may be ordered from our Publications Department. Prices are listed below (excluding postage). Supplies are limited. Contact us by telephone at (845) 424-4040, ext. 234 or at publications@thehastingscenter.org.
