Despite the ubiquity of consent, however, scholars have begun to question its adequacy for contemporary biomedical research.

In recent years, however, there has been a steady shift away from the use of the term 'research subject' in favour of 'research participant' when referring to individuals who take part by providing data to various kinds of biomedical and epidemiological research. This article critically examines this shift, reflecting on the different meanings (...)
