A 15-Year Review of Trends in Representation of Female Subjects in Islamic Bioethics Research

Zeenat Hussain et al. J Relig Health. .

Abstract

Gender representation in Islamic bioethics research in the twenty-first century has not been studied. To study temporal trends in representation of female subjects in Islamic bioethics research, PubMed-listed publications on Islamic bioethics from years 2000 to 2014 were reviewed for gender participation in human subjects' research. There were temporal trends of increasing publications of Islamic bioethics-related human subjects' research (64 papers over 15 years; R 2 = 0.72; p < 0.0004). Female subjects were well represented with a trend toward increasing participation. This was true for women from Muslim-majority countries even in non-gender-focused studies over the past 15 years.

Keywords: Bioethics; Female subjects; Gender; Human subjects; Islamic; Muslim countries.
