Citizen Science/Communicating Citizen Science
Like all research, the value of contributions in citizen science are greatest when communicated effectively. Further, citizen science in particular stands to benefit from the opportunities and affordances of openness, both in terms of open access (broadcast) and open collaboration (feedback). Digital and network technologies, especially the web, enable many substantive opportunities to practice and communicate citizen science.
