Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide the systematic procedures
of case study research. A robust case study protocol in the context
of societal and ethical issues with a relevant guidelines will set to
show how data should collect, present, and analyze. This paper
takes in particular the context of Responsible Research and
Innovation (RRI) as the phenomenon and investigates on how to
apply the methodologies, which could assist us to identify the
boundaries between societal and ethical issues and the emerging
ICTs. As such, to interpret the collected data and build theory
inductively, to have an excellent basis for further qualitative
research within RRI context, systematic procedures are needed to
conduct. This paper uses a holistic view to the literature for
providing guidelines for conducting and reporting case study
research for RRI context. It defines the information that needs to
be gathered from the cases, the way this data is to be analyzed and
the processes of reflections to be undertaken. Checklists for
conducting the case study protocol are linked to each step of
systematic procedures and applicable for researchers, ICT
managers, reviewers, and readers to allow them taking account of
societal and ethical aspects, in particular RRI principles in
emerging ICTs in a proper way.
