We follow a computational approach to assign research areas and categories to textual project descriptions on the web platform Zooniverse. Using this, we quantify the degree of multi-disciplinarity for 218 citizen science projects.
Are most of the citizen science projects only about environmental research? We answer this question by analysing descriptions of 218 Zooniverse projects using text analytics and identifying the predominant research area.
