The W. Maurice Young Centre for Applied Ethics has initiated the CAE Electronic Working Papers Series to hasten the public availability of research undertaken by and through the Centre. The papers in the DEG Electronic Working Papers Series are set apart as they are the product of a project funded by Genome Canada through the office of Genome British Columbia under Competition Two. The project is entitled Democracy, Ethics and Genomics: Consultation, Deliberation and Modelling.

Process

The DEG Electronic Working Paper Series presents pre-publication research papers by Centre faculty, staff and research associates that are judged by the series editors to be suitable in whole or in part for submission to a refereed journal, a conference, or for inclusion in an edited book. Each indexed reference in this series includes an abstract (text version), the complete paper (Adobe Acrobat), and a citation. Each paper includes the citation and appropriate acknowledgements, including “in press” information.

Once published, a paper will be removed from the DEG Electronic Working Papers Series. The index number, the abstract and the updated citation will remain on the site. The reader should note that a paper found on this site may be altered through the refereeing process.

Disclaimer

The works available through the DEG Electronic Working Paper Series are the responsibility of the individual author or authors and do not necessarily represent the views of other researchers. The W. Maurice Young Centre for Applied Ethics does not endorse individual research contributions.
