Citizen Science, the public contribution to science

Citizen Science, the public contribution to science | Open Science - Citizen Science | Scoop.it
For years, amateur scientists have greatly contributed to the growth of science by measuring, collecting, and sharing raw and/or processed data with the scientific community. This involvement of the public is called ″citizen science″. The advent of technology provides more opportunities for citizen to involve themselves in this process, but also more ways for scientists to mobilize them. Websites, mobile applications, and serious games are good examples of tools used in the digital age for the public participation in science.
