Abstract

While the importance of data is growing as the fuel of the new data economy, also the role of the data ecosystems is growing. The new data ecosystems enables the use, reuse and enrichment of big data sets by or together with third parties. However, in the context of technology management, the governance of these kinds of data ecosystems raises ethical questions and issues that should be acknowledged by researchers and practitioners. This study reviews the extant literature regarding the given advice about ethical considerations. The method of systematic literature study is used to collect the primary articles (N=20). The selected articles are analyzed and themed according to reoccurring themes: privacy, accountability, ownership, accessibility, and motivation. The results show the discussion is fragmented and concrete ethical guidelines are lacking. Thus, this study requires more work for governing data ecosystems in an ethical way.
