Some of our articles discuss various bioethical themes in the context of Malaysia. Currently, this page lists articles that were published in Volumes 12 to 14 (2020-2022) of the Asian Bioethics Review (ABR). We will gradually update this page with both more recent, but also older articles.

Our publisher Springer Nature allows you to read all articles online for free, even if you do not have a subscription to ABR – simply click on the title. Additionally:

  • Free2Read articles can be downloaded and printed as well, if you have a subscription.
  • Free or Open Access articles can be downloaded and printed, even without a subscription.
  • Our articles since 2018 are also accessible via PubMed Central (PMC), where they become Free Access after 12 months.

The copyright of Free2Read and Free Access articles is shared by Springer Nature and the National University of Singapore. The copyright of Open Access articles remains with the respective authors.
