Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce a new collaboration between Artificial Intelligence Humanities (AIH) and Jahr European Journal of Bioethics. Recently, AIH has joined Jahr as one of the publishers. Jahr is an open access, peer-reviewed journal mainly covering the field of bioethics, founded in 2010 in Croatia. It is an international academic journal indexed in SCOPUS, HRCAK, ERIH PLUS, and DOAJ.

Jahr’s purpose is to promote European bioethics, which is far different from mainstream bioethics. Whereas the term ‘bioethics’ usually refers to a relatively recently developed field of medical ethics, European bioethics is intended to be a more general, integrative approach to ethics. Its essential aim is bridging different fields of ethics, including environmental ethics, global ethics, etc.

This new and unique approach makes Jahr’s orientation both international and interdisciplinary. Though the title is the European Journal of Bioethics, its scope has never been limited to Europe and always invites valuable contributions from all around the world. It also strongly encourages interdisciplinary approaches across literally all fields of academia, including social sciences (sociology, psychology, law, political science, information and communication sciences, pedagogy, demography, social activities, security and defense sciences, economics), humanities (philosophy, philology, history, art history, archaeology, anthropology, religious sciences), and biomedical (medicine, public health, pharmacology).

Jahr always attempts to broaden its scope to incorporate varieties of interdisciplinary studies, and this direction perfectly accords with the integrative research project of AIH. AIH's aim is to pursue integrated humanities that understand natural sciences, engineering, and social sciences. It deals with artificial intelligence technology, changes in humans and society, and humanities data. Through this promising collaboration, we expect AIH will have a good opportunity to promote AI humanities internationally, and Jahr will be able to extend its range of research topics.

Jahr publishes both reviewed and unreviewed articles. Reviewed papers are categorized as following: original scientific articles, preliminary communications, review articles, professional articles. Unreviewed articles may include overviews of bioethics and AI research. Authors may submit other relevant publications published in the past three years in and outside Croatia, as well as reports and announcements of upcoming events relevant to bioethics. The publication process remains open all year long to everyone, and there are no fees for submitting papers for publication. Since Jahr has Student’s contribution section, not only researchers but also students can submit their papers.

We invite all colleagues who are interested in a new direction of interdisciplinary studies toward bioethics and AI humanities. Every original research from every field of study is always welcome.


With sincere appreciation and respect,

Kyumin Moon, Advisory Board Member
