The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is pleased to announce that its Potomac Institute Press has launched a new online publication, Synesis: A Journal of Science, Technology, Ethics and Policy, www.synesisjournal.com. Synesis will be a forum for critical thinking and for analysis of the science, ethics and policy needed for successful human endeavor in a wide range of fields. The Editor-in-Chief of Synesis is Prof. James Giordano, PhD, Chair of Academic Programs and Director of the Center for Neurotechnology Studies at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, and Senior Research Associate at the Wellcome Centre for Neuroethics and Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, University of Oxford, UK.
Synesis will appear semi-annually and will present original papers that address science, technology, ethics and policy – both singularly and in conjunction with one another. All papers are peer-reviewed. The journal welcomes submissions from those who seek to form intellectual bridges within and between disciplines. The debut issue of Synesis, Winter/Spring 2010, is entitled "Toward a Green Economy: Science, Technology and Policy in Interaction," and is guest edited by James Tate, PhD, former Science Advisor to the Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior and Director of the Potomac Institute's Center for Environmental Economics and Ethics.
