Consent has been the cornerstone of personal data privacy regime. This notion is premised on the liberal tenets of individual autonomy, freedom of choice and rationality. More important, consent is only meaningful if data subjects are fully informed and parties are of equal bargaining power. Under orthodox framework, it is believed that privacy can be waived by consent. The above concern is particularly pertinent to citizen science in health and medical research, in which the nature of… 
The Promise of Participation and Decision-Making Power in Citizen Science

DNA databanks and consent: A suggested policy option involving an authorization model
TLDR
This paper proposes the concept of an authorization model whereby participants in genetic data banks are able to exercise a certain amount of control over future uses of genetic data, which preserves the autonomy of individuals at the same time as allowing them to give permission and discretion to researchers for certain types of research.
Autonomy and Trust in Bioethics
Why has autonomy been a leading idea in philosophical writing on bioethics, and why has trust been marginal? In this important book, Onora O'Neill suggests that the conceptions of individual autonomy

TLDR
It is found that public non-anonymous data is valuable and leads to a participatory research model, which the implementation of this model is greatly facilitated by web-based tools and methods and participant education.

The PII Problem: Privacy and a New Concept of Personally Identifiable Information
TLDR
It is argued that although the current approaches to PII are flawed, the concept of PII should not be abandoned, and a new approach called PII 2.0 is developed, which accounts for PII’s malleability.
