Etikk i praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics (EiP) is a scholarly journal of applied ethics and related political theory. EiP aims to create a broad-based and unique journal for Nordic research within ethics. The contributions may focus on ethical, political or social aspects of scientific and technological developments within different fields, research ethics, and normative power, democracy and culture analyses. The journal provides a meeting place for applied ethics, be it within biotechnology, research, primary and secondary education, childhood, the Internet, culture, nature, business life, sports, the media, medicine, politics or elsewhere. EiP is double-blind peer reviewed and is published open access two times per year in May and November. It is currently level 1 in the Norwegian scientific classification system.

Nr 2/2017: Special Anniversary Issue 
10 years of Nordic applied ethics: Opportunities and challenges ahead
Deadline for submission: May 5, 2017

The first issue of Etikk i praksis – Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics released in November 2007 published papers that highlight interdisciplinary discussions of ethical issues around risks, professions, institutions, ethics committees and consent. These discussions were in line with the journal’s aim to contribute to the development of the field of applied ethics by providing a communication channel for focused conversation in the Nordic region. The journal has since published papers that extended the scope of exchange beyond the region as other researchers around the globe joined the conversation. The concerns and contributions of applied ethicists in the Nordic region became even more integrated to global discussions on various topics such as information technology, cosmopolitan rights and duties, climate change, to name a few. One possible reason for the expansion of conversations beyond the region is the ever-growing complexity of moral challenges that societies are facing. Such complexity requires broader perspectives that extend beyond the region as they do beyond disciplinal boundaries.

For this 10th Anniversary Special Issue of Etikk i praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics, we call for submissions that address any of these questions:
a. What new perspectives have emerged and are emerging in addressing key challenges in specific areas of applied ethics?
b. Which problems in applied ethics require new (or old) approaches that are seldom pursued? 

Submissions may review the state-of-the-art in specific areas or how developments in bioethics, business ethics, environmental ethics and other sub-fields shaped applied ethics in the past decade.

Submissions may also address broader questions like how applied ethics as a field should address grand challenges in science, technology and society and what opportunities and challenges interdisciplinary collaborations present to practitioners of applied ethics.
