Experiments: definitions of practice among CNR researchers - Experiments are one of the central practices in scientific methodology; however there is no widely shared meaning of the term, nor is there a set of elements that characterizes the procedures. This article suggests a classification of the characteristics considered central by scholars of science in experimental practice; it also reconstructs the intention of the concept of experiments from the definition given by a hundred CNR researchers who were interviewed. The study points out that even researchers who conduct experiments daily do not thoroughly consider the distinctive aspects of the experimental model, and therefore have difficulty in defining their research practices.
