Citizen science is increasingly incorporated in research projects, as it has proved extremely effective in many aspects of research from collecting data to verifying information from remote sensing data in the field. A new book on citizen science offers practical support for implementing projects and addresses emerging topics around citizen science and artificial intelligence.
The book “The Science of Citizen Science“, to which more than 100 authors including contributions from IIASA, was published open access with Springer today. The publication is the product of four years of intensive exchange within a European research network on citizen science. At the same time, it signals a beginning, as its curriculum-like structure gives universities and others the opportunity to reflect on both the substantive contributions to research and the societal benefit of citizen science. It offers practical support for implementing projects and also addresses emerging topics in citizen science and artificial intelligence.
