    Abstract

    Calibration is analyzed from the standpoint of scientific users of instrumental devices in everyday scientific practice, that is, the standpoint of practitioners who deal with instruments that are already well-designed and whose use is already entrenched in the scientific community. In order to clarify the nature of this kind of practice and to improve our understanding of its internal logic, we have elaborated a conceptual and taxonomic framework.
