AO. collaboration between enviro scientists and research community

  • AO: The analysts do not expressly use the term collaboration. However, I have included this reading because I believe the analysts are in fact describing their version of what ideally scientific collaboration between natural or physical environmental scientists and a research community should look like. Their “collaboration” therefore is engagement with communities affected by scientific research “to give them the ability to determine whether research may cause them harm and be part of determining how knowledge should best circulate to reduce or eliminate that harm.” They are explicitly designing this for use by scientists in environmental science that do *not* have human subjects are part of their original research design. They propose this method as a way to extend ethics to areas not usually considered in scientific research (3)
