Our New Book Has Arrived!!! – Citizen Science: Innovation in Open Science, Society and Policy.

I’m excited to announce that the latest Citizen Science book has been published this week. Including some contributions from yours truly (see Chapter 2). 

Citizen Science: Innovation in Open Science, Society and Policy is a 580 page volume, compiled by 121 co-authors, from across the world.. The book discusses the role that citizen science plays in the wider agenda for a culture of open science and open society and pushes us to think about how we are contributing to the realisation of responsible research and innovation.

The book explores these issues across five parts, addressing:

  1. Innovation in Citizen Science
  2. Innovation in Science with and for Society
  3. Innovation at the Science-Policy Interface
  4. Innovation in Technology and Environmental Monitoring
  5. Innovation in Science Communication and Education

And also includes a section dedicated to case studies.

The book is rightly open access.  You can download a pdf for free here.

I’m looking forward to receiving my own copy in the post, so I can dive into it with a cup of tea and a piece of cake to celebrate.

I hope you enjoy it!
