    Distributed Scientific Collaboration: Research Opportunities in Citizen Science Distributed Scientific Collaboration: Research Opportunities in Citizen Science Presentation Transcript

    • Virtual Citizen Science
      • Citizen science projects involve the public with scientists in collaborative research
        • Generates scientifically-valued outcomes
        • Depends on participation for scale or scope
      • Diverse characteristics
        • Participants, scientific research goals, task structure, organizational setting, IT use
      • We developed a conceptual framework to guide research & cyberinfrastructure development
    •  
    • Issues for Refinement
      • Structure
        • Small groups, communities or networks of practice, crowdsourcing?
        • Communities vs organizations
      • Context
        • Place-based vs entirely virtual; translation of collocated practices to online versions
      • Experience
        • More than motivation, effects on outcomes
