Researchers: Share your citizen science success stories with SciStarter, PLOS, and Discover Magazine

By July 12th, 2013 at 12:20 pm | Comment

SciStarter’s editors write and manage the SciStarter blog and the CitizenSci blog on the Public Library of Science website. They are planning a series of posts to review research outcomes and emergent technologies from a representative set of projects. If you’d like to share the research outcomes from your project and new, related emergent technologies, email Lily@SciStarter.com .

We are also writing a series to explore how individuals and communities benefit from the citizen-science experience. If your project and/or participant(s) in your project have influenced policy, on-the-ground conservation, and/or community vitality, particularly in some unexpected way, please email Caren@SciStarter.com .

We are currently writing a short essay for Discover Magazine on why citizen science matters. For those who may think it’s a fad or “just a hobby,” we’d like to describe how it has yielded substantive scientific information. How has your citizen science project advanced scientific research? Tell us by July 19 and we might include your story in our essay! Email darlene@scistarter.com .

Cheers to citizen science!
The SciStarter Team
