Computational analysis techniques can provide significant insights into Citizen Science

One of the central characteristics of the CS Track approach to investigating citizen science projects and activities is to focus on underlying types of participation, collaboration and knowledge creation. This perspective comprises semantic and pragmatic aspects of scientific discourse as well as more structural analyses that focus on connections and networking inside the projects, between different projects as well as the information flow between CS projects and other institutions in society (e.g. public media or education). Many relevant activities are materialised in online digital media such as web pages, forums or contributions to social media channels. To harvest this information, the CS Track team are using web based analytics to investigate citizen science activities.
