Conference paper on characterizing participation and interaction in a citizen science online community published

We are delighted to announce that the conference paper entitled “Using Network Analysis to Characterize Participation and Interaction in a Citizen Science Online Community”, written by our project partners Ishari Amarasinghe, Sven Manske, H. Ulrich Hoppe, Patricia Santos, and Davinia Hernández-Leo is now available online. In this article, they investigated the participation and collaboration patterns of different stakeholder groups within discussion forums of the “Chimp&See” project by analyzing publicly available forum data from the “Chimp&See” project hosted on the Zooniverse platform. The collected data was analysed using Social Network Analysis (SNA) and Epistemic Network Analysis (ENA) techniques. Click here to access the paper.
