This chapter examines the ethical dimensions of distributed collaboration in e-Research and offers recommendations for research strategies. It explains the distinction between morals and ethics and how distributed collaboration can give rise to established moral relationships, expectations, and practices as objects of ethical concern. It also discusses three main factors that are of particular relevance to successful collaboration: standardization, agreement across the consortium about key moral features of collaboration, and agreement in response to important questions in other important areas of practice. Moreover, the chapter considers virtual organizations and “moral architectures”.

Keywords:   distributed collaboration, e-Research, ethics, morals, standardization, virtual organizations, moral architectures
