Laikusok a tudományos kutatásokért? (Laymen for scientific research?)
This blog post aims to briefly introduce the concept of citizen science to a Hungarian audience. It follows the four levels of engagement that Haklay (2012) put forward as crowdsourcing, distributed intelligence, participatory science and extreme citizen science. The author supports this theoretical division with successful examples of citizen's engagement in large-scale research projects. In concluding, the author reflects on both the potential pros and cons involved in practicing citizen science.
