The characteristics of citizen science

We are thrilled to launch the 'Characteristics of citizen science' document, which aims to answer the question: what is citizen science - and what isn't?You can download the PDF document from our website, as well as the explanatory notes.

To find out a little more about the project - how it came about and the methodology used - read our interview with Muki Haklay, our vice chair, who led the process. Muki has also written about the aims of the project and the process followed on his personal blog, while a Twitter thread breaks it down into bite-sized chunks.

Plenty for you to enjoy - and please let us know your thoughts about the characteristics!
