A historical account of origin and evolution of Acta Bioethica (ISSN 0717-5906) is presented, emphasizing the topics addressed and the geographical origin of its authors during its first ten years of existence. Indexed in SciELO, Science Citation Index, Latindex and other bibliographic databases, the journal has become standard reference for scholars. Its papers, in English, Spanish and Portuguese, are cited with increasingly higher frequency. The Centro Interdisciplinario de Estudios en Bioética (CIEB), at the University of Chile, which edited it during the time of the consortium with The PAHO/WHO Bioethics Program, continues increasing its presence in specialized circles.
