Researchers are part of the society and reality they study. Therefore, the principles of scientific research include responsibility, transparency, and impact. Traditionally, the societal impact of science has been approached from the perspective of communicating research results. Interaction with society is one of the prerequisites for responsible and impactful science. The digital age has increased the means of interaction and changed the way we produce, share, and use knowledge. Citizen science as a research approach enables interaction at all stages of the research process, from defining the research question to data collection, analysis, and the utilization of results. For this reason, citizen science plays a significant role as a bridge between science and society. As part of the FInnish Policy for Open Scholarship, a Recommendation on Citizen Science was published for research organizations in 2022. This researcher's guide serves as a complementary part of the national guidelines for citizen science.
