Call for Student Contributions

A message from the Managing Editors of Sound Decisions: 

We’re currently seeking student entries for this semester’s edition of Sound Decisions, Puget Sound’s undergraduate bioethics journal. This journal publishes original student work discussing relevant bioethical topics in health, medicine, science, and technology, and aims to thereby serve as a platform for academic discourse among undergraduates. We welcome submissions in any of the following areas:

(2) Opinion pieces of up to 10 double-spaced pages in length on relevant bioethical issues.

(3) Original art that explores bioethical issues, with an optional statement about the piece and its relevance.

The opinions and arts pieces especially can cover a broad range of issues, so feel free to contact us with any questions regarding potential topics or pieces for submission. Please send submissions to by no later than Friday, April 8 to be considered for publication. Paper submissions should be typed and double-spaced in 12 pt Times New Roman font. Art can be submitted as high-resolution images in the format of your choice.
