A collaborative endeavour towards criteria for citizen science project platforms and why we need you
A current challenge for cs platform coordinators is to determine which projects to include on their online portals, as this decision is crucial for the perception of cs. In an attempt to tackle this challenge, the ECSA working group “Citizen Science Networks” is discussing and developing measurable and easy to understand criteria for cs platforms in an open process. You are invited to give your feedback and comments on the first version of the criteria to make them more inclusive, more understandable, more approachable and measurable until 31st of January 2021.
