Abstract [en]

This research note proposes that it is instructive to ask what happens when evaluative practices go wrong. It shows how a close study of mistakes and mishaps in evaluation - both in the process of their disclosure and subsequent management - provides important insights into ways in which evaluation practices contribute to performing and sustaining the relations of accountability involved. The note examines two cases: 1) the mistaken award of the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture and 2) the incident in November 2016 when Thomson Reuters notified a large number of scholars that they had been awarded the distinction of being a “Highly Cited Researcher” in their field, only a few hours later to retract these awards. Studying such instances provides insights into what is at stake for participants, the choreography of performing and revealing evaluations, the ways in which different evaluation practices fold together, and the accountability structures which support valuation practices.

Abstract [en]

This article examines the shifting conditions for biomedical knowledge production by studying trends in the design of biomedical experiments. The basic premise of the study is that the very act of establishing a research design entails a process involving a series of valuations where different values are evoked, ordered, and displaced. In focus is the articulation and ordering of what counts as central values in research design for two kinds of biomedical treatment trials, namely the traditional randomised controlled trial (RCT) and the emerging new form of biomarker trials used to assess biomarker/treatment combinations (BTTs). The empirical material consists of textbooks (RCTs) and journal articles (BTTs). We ask how these materials articulate the various scientific, medical, and economic values at play. Among the differences uncovered are a difference in relation to what counts as ethical in relation to prior knowledge, differences in the flexibility in design as well as the valuation of the risk for false positives and false negatives. More broadly, the study shows how textual accounts of different ways of producing knowledge are linked to partly different valuations of ethics, flexibility, and risk as part of establishing the research design of biomedical experiments.

Note

Funding agencies:This paper reports a sub-study within the larger project `Trials of Value' where Helgesson and Lee investigate the valuations performed in the designing of different kinds of experiments in medicine and biomedicine. The project has been made possible with a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. The authors want to thank Barbara Townley and Philip Roscoe as well as two anonymous reviewers for helpful and encouraging comments on earlier versions of this article. The article has furthermore benefited from comments on various occasions: the session `Clinical research in post-genomic medicine' at 4S/EASST Copenhagen, October 2012; the workshop `What price creativity? A workshop on the valuing of social/public goods' at University of St Andrews, December 2012; and the ValueS seminar within Technology and Social Change, Linkoping University. In particular, we want to acknowledge comments and encouragement by Alberto Cambrosio, Andrew Hoffman, Nicole Nelson, and Teun Zuiderent-Jerak.

Abstract [en]

This chapter takes an interest in what counts as valuable in the coordinative practices of large-scale research. The focus is motivated by how values sometimes are understood as part of what can hold large research endeavours together. Here, however, the topic of values is brought to the surface without presuming them to be fully shared and part of what is holding the overall endeavour together. Empirically the focus is on clinical registries, which analyse data regarding a large number of patients visiting different clinics. Examining how data are gathered and transferred in three registries, the study found a rich and diversified set of arrangements in use. Each registry can be understood as accommodating a few different modes for the gathering and transferring of data, where each enacts somewhat dissimilar values. Hence, the registries examined here are not held together by exchanges repetitively reinforcing a single set of widely shared values.

Talking about quality

What is quality in research? What is good research? How can we now how to practice it and how to assess it? These questions are almost impossible to answer, and they are precisely for this reason all the more important to talk about. This is, perhaps, all the more pressing in an interdisciplinary research context such as ours since we from this position are exposed to, and in contact with, many different conceptions of what counts as good quality in research.

I asked the participants in the group of professors to each write a short reflection essay on the topic of quality in research. The aim with these contributions is to spark further conversations. This group at tema T was singled out not because they know the answers, they were asked to reflect on this because they represent a long experience of not knowing the answers.

It is my hope and belief that these contributions here can help us elaborate our conversation about these ever-topical issues.

Abstract [en]

This article explores the indigenous epistemology of market research. Industry textbooks are here taken as examples of commonly held understandings about market research knowledge. They are made the object of an epistemographic investigation of how the production and transfer of market research knowledge is understood within the field itself. Particular interest is directed towards what such local epistemic considerations might imply for our scholarly understanding of how economic theories and models shape markets. Our exploration depicts an indigenous epistemology characterised by a number of interrelated tensions (market research as: description vs. recommendation; art vs. science; information vs. source of inspiration; and distance vs. engagement). The article contends that these traits of the indigenous epistemology are important for understanding how market research participates in shaping markets.

Abstract [en]

Health research and health care practice are radically transforming as governments invest more in large scale, national and international health projects with increasing levels of interdisciplinarity as populations age and as nations grow wealthier. This volume examines the structures and dynamics of scientific collaboration in health research and health care. Bringing together detailed research from the US, Canada, Europe and Japan, Collaboration Across Health Research and Medical Care sheds light on the features, environments and relationships that characterise collaboration in health care and research, exploring changing patterns of collaboration and examining the causes and consequences of team work in the health domain.

With attention to the increasingly porous boundaries between health care and research, the book not only investigates research settings, but also considers the manner in which knowledge produced in laboratories and clinics is translated into day-to-day medical and care practice and health initiatives. It offers a rich examination of the political, technical and organisational facets of collaboration and the implications of changes in collaboration for every day treatment and practice, Collaboration Across Health Research and Medical Care will be of interest to scholars of sociology and science and technology studies, as well as those working in the field of health policy and research.

Abstract [en]

Many deep concerns in the life sciences and medicine have to do with the enactment, ordering and displacement of a broad range of values. This volume articulates a pragmatist stance for studying the making of values in society, which means taking seriously the work scientists, regulators, analysts, professionals, and publics regularly do to define what counts as proper conduct, what is economically valuable, and what is known and worth knowing. The volume proposes the word valuography to indicate an empirically oriented research program into the simultaneous making of seemingly separate values. Exploring various sites within life sciences and medicine, this volume features in-depth studies ranging from how zoos make animal value to how health care administrators attempts to engineer fair and efficient health care markets.
