Big data analytics and revision of the common rule

Jacob Metcalf

Data & Society Researcher Jacob Metcalf reconsiders research ethics in the wake of big data.

“Many of the familiar norms and regulations of research ethics formulated to prior paradigms of research risks and harms, and thus the formal triggers for ethics review are miscalibrated. We need to reevaluate longstanding assumptions of research ethics in light of the emergence of “big data” analytics.”
