Routine, Scale, and Inequality

Introduction to the Special Issue on Ethics, Organizations, and Science

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This special issue of Science, Technology, & Human Values contains articles concerned with ethics in and around scientific practice. These articles ask how organizational routines both produce and diffuse concerns about the risks and benefits of scientific research and products, and why context remains elusive in formal ethical analysis. These cases are from diverse settings, with several touching on issues of economic inequality and participation in scientific research. Each article describes in some way how cultural and institutional configurations shape ethical thinking and the distribution of goods and harms in science.
