Göbel, Claudia. ‘Open Participatory Research — Four Challenges for Opening Science Beyond Scientific Institutions’, 2019. https://doi.org/10.25815/qykn-de07.

Claudia Göbel proposes a framework of examination for how Citizen Science and other types of participatory research should form a more prominent part of the much needed cultural change in knowledge institutions. This is to complement the many reforms already underway in other areas of Open Science & Scholarship.

Welcome to Post-Digital Community Science!

A Generation Research theme: April/May 2019

Invitation to contribute!

The theme will start in mid April 2019 and over the course of six weeks GenR will look to offer up examples of cutting edge work in the field from across Europe.

If you would like to make a contribution please drop the editor-in-chief Simon Worthington a line at simon@genr.eu or DM @gen_r_ on Twitter.

In this Generation Research theme the idea is to look at how the general public can participate in the research process and the creation of knowledge as Community Science and how this is reinvigorating a culture of scholarship and science in society at large.

Citizen Science is booming around the world but the degree to which it is open varies greatly, as does formal support for Citizen Science across disciplines, organizations and countries.
