How Do I Do That?”), there are opportunities to work on research in what is termed citizen science, people-powered research, or crowd-sourced research. This article describes this science activity for the public, discusses its difference from traditional lab-based investigations, and summarizes its value for science and society.
Crowdsourcing research can balance discussions, validate findings and better inform policy, say Raphael Silberzahn and Eric L. Uhlmann.
Crowdsourcing is a sourcing model in which individuals or organizations obtain goods and services, including ideas, voting, micro-tasks and finances, from a large, relatively open and often rapidly-evolving group of participants.Currently, crowdsourcing typically involves uses the internet to attract and divide work between participants to achieve a cumulative result.Despite the growing number of crowd science projects in a wide range of fields (see Table 1 for examples), scholarly work on crowd science itself is largely absent. We address this lack of research in several ways. First, we introduce the reader to crowd science by briefly presenting three case studies of crowd science projects in biochemistry, astronomy, and mathematics.The Scientist in Us All: How crowdsourcing in science is changing the world Let us imagine John, 30 years old and a lawyer in London, at home after work. Before he goes to bed, he switches on his laptop, and plays a simple puzzle game for leisure.

I want a scientific research paper on the Next Fifth Generation (5G) of communications technology. Specifically about the candidate technology known as Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM). I want novel results using MATLAB. The paper should include the following: 1.Read More
However, there is a financial tool on the horizon that may bring more power to scientists and allow them to take their research proposals to the public: Crowdfunding. We’ve taken the time to compile the top crowdfunding sites on the web that you can use to either pitch a scientific research project to the public or support the causes and innovations that you care about.Read More
Involving the public in research may provide considerable benefits for the progress of science. However, the sustainability of “crowd science” approaches depends on the degree to which members of the public are interested and provide continued labor inputs. We describe and compare contribution patterns in multiple projects using a range of measures.Read More
Members of the scientific community around the world are stepping up to find answers to the many questions the pandemic raises. Experts are working together, both inside and outside of laboratories, to provide the best information directly to the public (for example, through the Federation of American Scientists’ crowd-sourced website), to coordinate global research priorities, and much more.Read More
