Citizen Science (CS) is a prominent field of application for Open Science (OS), and the two have strong synergies, such as: advocating for the data and metadata generated through science to be made publicly available [ 1 ]; supporting more equitable collaboration between different types of scientists and citizens; and facilitating knowledge transfe...

In line with the growth in citizen science projects and participants, there are an increasing number of guidelines on different aspects of citizen science (e.g. specific concepts and methodologies; data management; and project implementation) pitched at different levels of experience and expertise. However, it is not always easy for practitioners t...

In recent decades, problems related to the accessibility and sustainability of science have increased, both in terms of the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge and its generation. Policymakers, academics, and, increasingly, citizens themselves have developed various approaches to this issue. Among them, citizen science is distinguished by ma...
Article
Full-text available
The term citizen science refers to a broad set of practices developed in a growing num- ber of areas of knowledge and characterized by the active citizen participation in some or several stages of the research process. Definitions, classifications and terminology remain open, reflecting that citizen science is an evolving phenomenon, a spectrum of...

This article details a correction to the article: Turbé, A., Barba, J., Pelacho, M., Mugdal, S., Robinson, L.D., Serrano-Sanz, F., Sanz, F., Tsinaraki, C., Rubio, J.-M. and Schade, S., 2019. Understanding the Citizen Science Landscape for European Environmental Policy: An Assessment and Recommendations. 'Citizen Science: Theory and Practice', 4(1),...
Article
Full-text available
Citizen science is increasingly upheld with the potential to underpin all aspects of the environmental policy process. However, to date, contributions of citizen science to environmental decision-making remain sparse and not well understood. Evidence points to a gap between the potential relevance of citizen science for policy and its actual implem...

Citizen science for environmental policy Development of an EU-wide inventory and analysis of selected practices - Study Publication metadata Citizen science is the non-professional involvement of volunteers in the scientific process, whether in the data collection phase or in other phases of the research. Citizen science is a powerful tool for envi...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Open Digital Science (ODS) and Open Science describe new and open practices in science, research and innovation that make extensive use of digital technologies. The use of digital technologies facilitates openness regarding data, methods, results, actors or publications with an emphasis on scalability of the approach in terms of data, access or com...

We present a new tool, Kampal (http:// kampal. unizar. es), developed to help to analyze the academic productivity of a research institution from the point of view of Complex Networks. We will focus on two main aspects: paper production and funding by research grants. Thus, we define a network of researchers and define suitable ways of describing t...
Article
In this paper, we present a local Fourier analysis framework for analyzing the different components within multigrid solvers for edge-based discretizations on triangular grids. The different stencils associated with edges of different orientation in a triangular mesh make this analysis special. The resulting tool is demonstrated for the vector Lapl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In Citizen Science, a broad network of people collaborate. Participants provide experimental data and facilities for researchers, raise new questions and co-create a new scientific culture. While they add value, volunteers acquire new learning and skills and gain a deeper understanding of the scientific work in appealing ways. As a result of this o...
Article

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary research field that develops tools for the analysis of large biological databases, and, thus, the use of high performance computing (HPC) platforms is mandatory for the generation of useful biological knowledge. The latest generation of graphics processing units (GPUs) has democratized the use of HPC as they p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We present here a complete Citizen Science scenario being deployed for secondary school teachers and students who will be able to take active part of the biotechnology research process. It intends to be a successful use case to demonstrate the mutual benefits of the integration of this kind of collective intelligence on the education field. As a co...
Article
Full-text available
Citizen Science, a fairly new term but a practice with more than a century, includes today a wide range of activities through which citizens may play a central role in scientific projects, either by collecting data, analyzing massive data sets, providing resources, or by developing small-scale experimental activities among grass-roots groups. In pa...

The number of people using online social networks in their everyday life is continuously growing at a pace never saw before. This new kind of communication has an enormous impact on opinions, cultural trends, information spreading and even in the commercial success of new products. More importantly, social online networks have revealed as a fundame...

Project
In the vision underlying open digital science — ODS — radically different scientific practices based on digital technologies are emerging. ODS is widely believed to foster and stimulate openness of scientific knowledge, by and for everyone to access, acquire, and benefit from. With this study we propose to expand our knowledge and vision of ODS, and understand how it is changing the relation of science and society.
Project
Este portal Observatorio de ciencia ciudadana se presenta como una herramienta para todos. Como repositorio de contenidos y catálogo de prácticas, como plataforma para ver y ser visto, con contenidos de divulgación y educación científica. Además, se desarrollarán Indicadores específicos de Ciencia Ciudadana: que podrán ser analizados desde este mismo portal. En paralelo a los análisis cuantitativos se realizarán análisis cuantitativos y además de mirar a los números y a las estadísticas miraremos a las distintas caras de la ciencia ciudadana. No solo apuntaremos a publicaciones científicas, también a repositorios de datos abiertos, artículos de divulgación o anotaciones procedurales por citar algunas fuentes previstas. El Observatorio busca facilitar el conocimiento sobre la Ciencia Ciudadana. La definición de Ciencia Ciudadana no está fija sino que es un concepto en evolución. Contínuamente aparecen nuevas formas de involucración. Ponerlas en el mapa permite entender el todo a partir de las partes. A partir de un seguimiento continuado en el tiempo se analizará cómo evoluciona la relación entre la ciencia y la sociedad. Al dar visibilidad de los proyectos se busca incrementar la participación en los distintos proyectos de ciencia ciudadana que se encuentre activos en cada momento. Así mismo, se facilita la coordinación entre proyectos para buscar sinergías. Cualquiera puede compartir recursos y compartir resultados en los distintos ámbitos que recorre la Ciencia Ciudadana.
