The Data Science Ethos
A Structured Approach to Data Science
The Data Science Ethos operationalizes the responsibilities of data scientists - conducting outcomes-based research that is grounded in a thoughtful understanding of the human impacts and interactions of the work.
We offer practitioners structured ways of thinking about the social and ethical contexts relevant to each stage of the data science research process.
Data Science Ethos - Announcement Webinar
The Data Science Ethos launched in May 2023 with an announcement webinar. Check out the recording of the webinar to learn more about the history of the Ethos, its implementation, and where we are taking it.
Contribute a Case Study
The Data Science Ethos relies on individual contributions to provide case studies and teaching material.
To help contributors develop their case study, our six-step lifecycle captures the distinct, high-level stages of most data science projects and associates a robust conceptual framework that sheds light on the benefits and challenges of ethics-centered data science approaches.
