An Editor's Story of Lost Sleep

Johns Hopkins University Press recently published a blog story by James DuBois on the challenges of developing a reasonable privacy protection policy for Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics.

It begins, "Publishing shares something in common with roller coasters: The rewards are strongly and positively correlated with the capacity to instill fright. ..."

The full story can be read here.

Kick Off

The Foundation for Narrative Inquiry has established the Forum for several purposes.

It will be a great place to share our current calls for stories. Stories are the backbone of the journal, Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics, and we are always looking to expand our circle of authors.

The Forum also provides a space to discuss particularly intriguing stories, narrative symposia, and articles. From time-to-time, we will invite individuals to publish additional commentaries.

We will also use the Forum to publish stories that do not fit in a narrative symposium, but complement the symposium. For example, our forthcoming issue on experiences of living organ donation will include stories from donors themselves. We could publish in the Forum stories from a transplant surgeon or an organ recipient.

We welcome comments on all postings to the Forum. Comments will be moderated; approved comments will ordinarily be posted within 1 business day.

Stay tuned ...
