The Toolbox Dialogue Initiative: The Power of Cross-Disciplinary Practice

We wrote a book! It's the first-ever volume telling the entire story of the Toolbox Dialogue Initiative.   Cross-disciplinary scientific collaboration is emerging as standard operating procedure for many scholarly research enterprises. And yet, the skill set needed for effective collaboration is neither taught nor mentored. The

Power in Science Communication Collaborations

In this comment, we focus on the ways power impacts science communication collaborations. Following Fischhoff’s suggestion of focusing on internal consultation within science communication activities, we examine the ways such consultation is complicated by existing power structures, which tend to prioritize scientific knowledge over other

Expertise in research integration and implementation for tackling complex problems: when is it needed, where can it be found and how can it be strengthened?

Expertise in research integration and implementation is an essential but often overlooked component of tackling complex societal and environmental problems. We focus on expertise relevant to any complex problem, especially contributory expertise, divided into ‘knowing-that’ and ‘knowing-how.’ We also deal with interactional expertise and the

Coupled Ethical-Epistemic Analysis as a Tool for Environmental Science

This paper presents a new model for how to jointly analyze the ethical and evidentiary dimensions of environmental science cases, with an eye toward making science more participatory and publically accountable. To do so, it adapts and expands the existing model of ‘coupled ethical-epistemic analysis,’

Experimental Philosophy of Science and Philosophical Differences across the Sciences

This paper contributes to the underdeveloped field of experimental philosophy of science. We examine variability in the philosophical views of scientists. Using data from Toolbox Dialogue Initiative, we analyze scientists’ responses to prompts on philosophical issues (methodology, confirmation, values, reality, reductionism, and motivation for scientific

A virtue-based responsible conduct of research curriculum: Pilot test results

Drawing on Pennock’s theory of scientific virtues, we are developing an alternative curriculum for training scientists in the responsible conduct of research (RCR) that emphasizes internal values rather than externally imposed rules. This approach focuses on the virtuous characteristics of scientists that lead to responsible
