Definitions for claims
20
Advance Claims of "Problem Outcome" By Researcher
If at least one or more claim about the outcome was made by the head investigator prior to the study.
21
Financially Involved Researcher
If the head investigator has a financial stake, or reputation, or other stake in the outcome of the study.
22
Financially Involved Downstream
If some of the subjects involved in tracking have a financial relationship (e.g. ESteward clients) with the investigator.
23
Advance Notice of GPS Deployment
If at least one or more subjects admit to or claim to have been given direct information before, during, or prior to publication of the study.
24
Financially Involved Party Involved in Deployment
If at least one or more subjects actually provides the electronics being tracked and advises investigators which to place where.
25
Randomly Selected Device
If no major portion of e-waste stream (e.g. large CRT and projection TVs) is tracked at all, or attractive devices are more likely to be tracked.
26
Randomly Selected Upstream
If at least one or more initial placements occurred at a specific target, such as a non-public drop off with no external signs or collections.
27
Randomly Selected Target Recycler
If at least one or more initial placements was influenced by advance knowledge of which recycler would receive it.
28
Ability to Influence Downstream in Real Time
If financially involved investigators and clients had the ability to cancel dock appointments in order to prevent legitimate recycling.
29
Consultation after GPS was found
If at least one or more financially involved subjects was approached and briefed by the investigator prior to publication of the study.
30
Statistically Significant Data Set
If the initial number of devices was randomly selected in a large enough number to provide statistically significant outcomes.
31
Unwitting / Unwilling Participants
If at least one or more 'participants' in the study were unwitting, unwilling, and publicly shamed.
32
Advertising for Donations in Press Release
If the lead investigator solicits income either for general support or for specific placement of GPS devices as sponsors direction.
33
Claims knowledge of the motivation of subjects
If the lead investigator makes public claims about the motivation of the unwitting subjects based on his hypothesis, without study or review.
