Citizen Science Perspectives on Open Science
Posted on 13/05/2020

UNESCO is developing a global policy and regulatory agenda on Open Science (UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science) that will include Citizen Science as one important pillar. The Citizen Science Global Partnership is forming the CSGP Citizen Science & Open Science Community of Practice (CoP) which will be collaborating with UNESCO on this initiative.

The first request of our partnership with UNESCO is to produce a short paper by the end of May 2020. The paper shall reflect the Citizen Science perspective on Open Science and its development in the future. To create this within the short time provided, we urgently request your input and references to relevant documents.

We invite you to fill out this questionnaire to share your views and provide existing material regarding Citizen Science perspectives on Open Science.  The time afforded to us by UNESCO is tight; therefore, please provide your input by Thursday, May 21st, 2020. 

The questionnaire should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  After the survey closes, we will analyze the results and offer them to UNESCO as the Citizen Science community’s perspective.  We will also share the results with major citizen science listservs, and publish them on the Citizen Science Global Partnership (CSGP) website.

We encourage you to share this email broadly with your networks!

If you have questions about the process, please email
