Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics is published on behalf of the NIB Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. The Foundation was established in 2010 to foster education and research in bioethics and related fields through publishing and other activities.
The Foundation welcomes donations to support its mission of education and publishing in bioethics.
NIB is currently raising funds to publish additional issues of VOICES*. Click on the links below for more information.

- Receiving the Gift of Life: Stories from Organ Transplant Recipients
Donations will be used to support the editorial, publishing and educational activities of the Foundation. We will make a good faith effort to raise sufficient funds to publish particular issues of VOICES as donors indicate their preferences. If donations exceed the cost needed, or the amount raised is insufficient to cover the cost of a particular issue, funds will be allocated to the Foundation’s general fund so that we can continue to foster education and research in bioethics and related fields through publishing and other activities.
To discuss giving opportunities, please contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics is the most original idea I have seen for a journal in decades. Everyone agrees that respect for persons is a critical component of ethical behavior but somehow most of our journals are focused on the perspectives of academics not the people who experience the difficult bioethical dilemmas. We need to hear from everyone, the nurses aides who help people in and out of beds, the people with AIDS who get shunned by their neighbors, the doctors who have to negotiate with patients who want the ‘wrong’ treatments, and everyone else. Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics is giving a voice to everyone who plays a role in healthcare. It is a long overdue innovation."
