Eubios Ethics Institute Newsletter 3 (1993), 13-14, 27, .

The appear to be an ever increasing number of bioethics centres being established in various parts of the world, and it would be useful to have a directory of these. Anyone with information please send news of bioethics centres, and these will be listed in the newsletter. Many thanks to the L.J. Goody Bioethics Centre and University of Toronto Centre for Bioethics for sending lists in response to the announcement last issue.

In each issue different centres will be listed - to add to the list in this issue, addresses only due to space. Please note that this issue does not have room for all the US centres, so these will be listed in the next issue. In past issues of the newsletter addresses of some have already been given, especially of those which publish newsletters. For further descriptions of bioethics centres see Ethically Speaking 1(1-3), which describes institutional members of the Association for Practical & Professional Ethics, Indiana University, 410N. Park Ave, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA.

A new list, from end of July 1993, from the Kennedy Institute of Ethics is available for US$35 prepaid in North America or US$40 elsewhere, by ordering: International Directory of Bioethics Organizations, Anita L. Nolen & Mary. C. Coutts, eds., Bioethics Resource Series, Volume 1. Washington, DC: Kennedy Institute of Ethics; Georgetown University; Fax +1-202-687-6770. They idenitfy 278 organizations in 42 countries, 150 within the USA, lisiting useful feautres of them and educational courses. It is a much welcome addition to the UNESCO list published earlier in the year, and both lists cover most of the world bioethics organizations.
