Over the years, the Asian Bioethics Review (ABR) has discussed various aspects of bioethics and Islam. We have collected a number of these articles on this webpage, and will keep this page up-to-date with our most recent publications, as well as gradually add our older articles on this topic.

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 from 2017 onwards is shared by Springer Nature and the National University of Singapore. The copyright of Free Access articles until 2016 is shared by the National University of Singapore and the respective authors. The copyright of Open Access articles remains with the respective authors.
