About us

Citizen Science is scientific research carried out using amateur volunteers from the public, in collaboration with professional scientists and experts. Citizen scientists -- members of the public who participate in these projects -- have the opportunity to contribute to real research in fields as varied as astronomy, healthcare and ecology.

At the University of Southampton, we are involved in a wide range of research activities looking at citizen science as a form of research, bringing together researchers from computer science, social sciences, web science and more to investigate ways to maximise volunteer engagement with projects, ensure a desirable level of data quality is produced, and ensure the community around a project can sustain and maintain the project itself.
