The Citizen Science Association is delighted to announce the launch of its flagship journal, Citizen Science: Theory and Practice. The journal will provide a central space for cross-disciplinary scholarly exchanges that are aimed at advancing the field of citizen science.
Citizen Science: Theory and Practice is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal published by Ubiquity Press on behalf of the Citizen Science Association. It focuses on advancing the field of citizen science by providing a venue for citizen science researchers and practitioners – scientists, information technologists, conservation biologists, community health organizers, educators, evaluators, urban planners, and more – to share best practices in conceiving, developing, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining projects that facilitate public participation in scientific endeavors in any discipline.
As a fully open access journal, we hope that these key insights and exchanges can become part of a new body of broadly accessible academic scholarship, rather than being shared in traditional publication venues solely among practitioners, evaluators, and funders in traditional publication venues.
