Open Access publications

The Bioethics and Law Observatory (OBD) of the University of Barcelona holds the Open Access philosophy, and works to provide free access to knowledge generated by our research center, aiming to provide arguments and proposals to encourage autonomy and responsibility in bioethical decisions that result in the construction of a more transparent and democratic society..
