  • Ethical boundary work in citizen science

    • Authors: Dick Kasperowski, Niclas Hagen, Frauke Rohden
      Abstract: The concept of boundary work (Gieryn 1983, 1999) has been developed to capture the
      ways in which scientists collectively defend and demarcate their intellectual territories.
      This article applies the concept of boundary work to the ethical realm and investigates the
      ethical boundary work performed by researchers in the field of citizen science (CS) through
      a literature review and by analysing accounts of ethics presented in CS literature.
      Results show that ethical boundary work in the CS literature is, to a large extent, a matter
      of managing ambiguities and paradoxes without any clear boundaries drawn between the
      unethical and ethical. Scientists are negotiating ethical positions, which might, occasionally,
      enhance the ethical authority of ‘non-science’ and non-scientists, as well as maintain
      already established research ethics. The main ethical boundary work in CS displays
      variations towards perceived insufficiencies of conventional research ethics to accommodate
      “outsiders”, addressing issues of distribution, relevance, and expulsion as science include
      volunteer contributors in the scientific process.
