Towards a New Science: Control and Accountability in Collaborations between Workers and Scientists.
Merrifield, Juliet; Lippin, Tobi
Convergence: An International Journal of Adult Education, v22 n2-3 p64-74 1989
An occupational health survey conducted by union members in collaboration with an epidemiologist found that stress is a major occupational hazard. Conflict over dissemination of the results raised issues about who controls the research process and its outcomes, to whom are researchers accountable, and whether the scientific method can be used to meet the needs of the powerless.
