Research Repository

What’s in the repository?

REELER’s research repository contains individual contributions from REELER’s diverse team of researchers, including a selection of peer-reviewed articles and REELER’s working paper series. The repository also contains additional reports and supplementary material related to REELER’s research activities.

Peer-reviewed Articles

Through the course of the REELER project, REELER’s researchers have each published several peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and other research publications. A selection of these are presented here.

Working Papers

The REELER working paper series presents individual contributions by REELER researchers, including ongoing research results, literature reviews, and position papers. These papers are works in progress and may be published as peer-reviewed publications at a later date.

Literature Reviews

As part of the REELER project’s efforts to develop common ground within the project, researchers performed literature searches and comprehensive reviews of key analytical concepts and empirical topics that would guide our research. These concepts broadened and deepened understandings of the empirical field and laid a framework for analysis.

Research Instruments

REELER has created and used many instruments for interdisciplinary research. These include interview guides, best practices and shared research protocol, and more.

Database Queries

REELER maintains a database of 160 interview transcripts from our 11 ethnographic case studies. During our analysis phase, REELER has made a number of database queries to retrieve quotations(selected interview excerpts ) that relate to a particular analytical point (e.g., all quotations by robot developers containing the word ‘ethics’).


The Powerpoint presentations from REELER’s end-conference and European Parliament session are available here.

Robot Mapping Reports

In order to gain an overview of robot development activities in different European regions, REELER researchers examined robotics associations, market reports, and directories of robot developers, integrators, and suppliers. This robot mapping exercise allowed REELER to identify clusters and trends in regional robot development (e.g., social robotics in Spain) and to identify four factors that differentiate robot makers: country or region, robot type, application sector, and organization type. These reports were the starting point for our multi-variation approach to ethnographic case studies.
