Journal of Animal Ethics Debuts

As those of us in the humane education and citizen activism fields know, there's no abundance of academic and professional information available. That's why we're excited to learn about the new Journal of Animal Ethics. The first journal of its kind in the world, the JAE is dedicated to both theoretical and applied explorations of progressive thought and practices regarding animal ethics. A joint project of the University of Illinois Press and the Ferrater Mora Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, the multidisciplinary, internationally-focused journal includes full-length scholarly articles, "argument" pieces "in which authors will advance a particular perspective," research reports, and reviews.

Topics covered in the inaugural issue include:
  • Can commercial seal hunts be morally justified in the 21st century?
  • An exploration of the paradox of our view of "pets" vs. "meat"
  • Can animals and humans be friends?
  • The use of animals in embryonic stem cell research
The journal is currently calling for papers on relevant topics and invites readers and contributors from both the academic and activist realms.
