CS Track combines methods of social sciences, the humanities and computer sciences. It (1) reviews literature on citizen science – by scientists, policy makers, funders and interest groups, among others – and conducts expert interviews on open issues, (2) compiles a database of citizen science projects and conducts semi-structured interviews to explore projects that have been selected by drawing lot, (3) analyzes digital manifestations and traces of citizen science projects, and (4) conducts online surveys.
CS Track is broadening our knowledge about Citizen Science by investigating Citizen Science activities, disseminating good practices and formulating knowledge-based policy recommendations to maximise the potential benefit of Citizen Science activities on individual citizens, organisations, and society at large.
