On the Preconditions for Intervention in Systems Design

Tone Bratteteig
University of Oslo, Norway


Abstract
I am currently participating in a project at the University of Oslo aimed at introducing an extension of the publication registration system, which supports research ethics. The current system allows researchers to register their publications, and administrators to count them. The number of publications is the basis for a part of the funding to the University and internally in the University. A couple of scandals concerned with fake data and fake co-authorship have triggered a wish to bring the ethical awareness more to the foreground. Together with a colleague from Dept. of Sociology I have been asked to evaluate the system: he investigates the attitudes towards research ethics and how they change, I evaluate the system as a work tool. Our reports will be the basis for decisions about the system by the University management.
