12017-01-10T10:33:33-08:00Introduction: a map of the map.84An introductory page for users after the landing page.vistoc3770622017-12-06T04:47:45-08:00Transboundary movements of e-waste are a matter of concern for a wide variety of actors including legislators, regulatory authorities, NGOs, corporations, and individual citizens. This online document offers a mapping of the complex terrain of actors and issues associated with transboundary movements of e-waste. As such, the document provides a navigation tool for a wide range of potential users: from those who are new to the issues, to those who may have domain expertise in some area(s) of the issues (e.g., legislation, toxicology, supply chain management, trade, etc).
Scenarios of use
There are several ways this controversy map can be used. Users can quickly orient themselves in the complex debate about transboundary shipments of e-waste by learning:
The range of terms used to frame the debate by different protagonists. In other words, what is the debate about and how do the terms of the debate frame the issue?
The range of protagonists (or 'actors') that contribute to the debate. In other words, who are key players in the debate and who is relegated to the margins? How do actors connect together or, alternatively, disassociate themselves from one another?
The two scenarios above can be traced on different parts of the map. One part charts the controversy on the Anglophone web indexed by Google. Another part charts it in Anglophone scholarly literature indexed by Scopus.
Other more advanced uses of the controversy map are possible depending on specific users' interests. The map provides access to analysis tools with 'live' links to the underlying data. These data can be probed for questions of users' own making.
Navigating the map website
The map is presented using Scalar, a free and open source digital publishing platform. Below users will find an annotated image of the Scalar interface for this controversy map. The annotations highlight common features across all pages of the map relating to navigation and commenting. Note that a table of contents is accessible on all pages of the map by clicking the button just to the left of the compass icon at the top left of the screen. If users wish to comment on any parts of the map, there are two ways to do so:
1) at the bottom of any page there is a 'thought bubble' icon that users can click to add comments. This is a good approach if users wish to make general comments about a whole page; or
2) users can launch the Hypothesis platform by accessing the icons near the top right corner of any page (see arrow icon, eye icon, and note icon). Hypothesis allows users to annotate any page at the scale of individual words, sentences, and paragraphs. Both approaches to commenting on the map require a free registration.
With these brief introductory remarks, users can start navigating the map where they wish by clicking the links in the image at the top of the page or, alternatively, following the links in the table of contents below.
