Real-time Technology Assessment
11 Apr 2006 |
Real-time technology assessment (RTTA) is a social technology that relies on fundamental understandings of the social, moral, political, and economic dynamics of knowledge-based innovation that have developed over the past three decades. These understandings reveal the complex, value-laden...
Scientific Ethics and the Signs of Voodoo Science
18 Oct 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew S. Hirsch
Until recently, the issue of research ethics had not been a subject of explicit discussion within the Physics community. Over the past ten years, however, documented cases of scientific fraud have brought this issue to center stage. We will explore, through case studies, some examples ranging...
