BEKIS - the Bioethics Communication and Information System
BEKIS is the bioethics infrastructure database of the German Reference Centre for Ethics in the Life Sciences (DRZE). It complements the DRZE's own bioethics literature database BELIT. BEKIS lists national and international academic institutions, projects, working groups, individual researchers and funding bodies working in the field of ethics in the life sciences.
BEKIS is meant to serve several target groups: For researchers in the field of bioethics BEKIS provides a platform for the presentation of their work as well as for active communication within their research discipline. For users such as for example journalists or politicians or interested members of the general public who seek information on activities in the field of bioethics research BEKIS provides comprehensive and comfortable information and search facilities.
