Valuation Studies is an emerging field of research that places emphasis on the means and processes of achieving values, as well as their comparison and use. The study of value and valuation ties in with the study of the mitigation of multiple regimes of value, and the establishment of commensurable values. The perspective also opens for the deconstruction of the socio-technical means of calculation and mediation. In this valuation studies connects to the field of science & technology studies and critical accounting. Following the construction of economic accounts, and the technologies of evaluation is an important way to gain a full picture of valuation that ties in with economics.
