The ethical implications of the new research paradigm

Scott, Peter (2003) The ethical implications of the new research paradigm. Science and Engineering Ethics, 9(1), pp. 73-84. ISSN (print) 1353-3452


Research is now an increasingly heterogeneous activity involving an expanded range of new actors and stake-holders and employing an eclectic range of epistemologies and methodologies. The emergence of these new research paradigms--and, in particular, of so-called 'Mode 2' knowledge production that is highly contextualised and socially distributed--raises new and challenging ethical issues and also important questions about the autonomy of science and the social responsibilities of scientists.
