Divergence of values and goals in participatory research

One of PEWS’s continuing activities is an interdisciplinary ‘R&D’ (research and discussion) group. We’re proud to announce that some of the members of that group have coauthored an article in Studies in History and Philosophy of Science that’s now available online. The article, “Divergence of values and goals in participatory research,” suggests that existing schemes for categorizing types of participatory research should be updated to reflect the relationship participants’ goals bear to those of the researchers, a relationship that is significant for the value of the public participation in the research and of the research itself. The paper’s authors are Lucas Dunlap, Amanda Corris, Melissa Jacquart, Zvi Biener, and Angela Potochnik. You can access the article at this link (freely available until September 2!)
