Quality Criteria for Resources ¶

After completing all mandatory metadata fields in the profile, and ensuring that the resource is relevant to citizen science initiatives, the resource will be assessed against a set of specific criteria that we developed to ensure that all resources profiled on the platform are of good quality.
We consider good quality citizen science resources to be those that are easy to access, implement and adapt, are well structured, are clearly described and written in clear language, and ideally improve or support the desired impact of the initiative (eg. on science, policy or society, etc). It also enhances the value and quality of your resource when you can say something about how it has been used and developed further in practice, and whether or not it has been evaluated for usefulness, applicability, and impact.
You can read the full list of criteria in Quality Criteria for Resources.
