After dinner: the best time to create 1.5 million dollars of ground-breaking science

Citizen science refers to collaborative research undertaken by professional scientists and the public. Since it first launched (as ‘Galaxy Zoo’) in 2007, the Zooniverse has grown into the world’s largest citizen science platform, with more than 25 science projects and over a million volunteer citizen scientists. The OII’s Khairunnisa Haji Ibrahim, Taha Yasseri, and Samuel Khodursky (Oxford Dept Physics) discuss initial findings from a project on the taxonomy and ecology of contributions to the Zooniverse, which examines the geographical, gender and temporal patterns of contributions and contributors to 17 Zooniverse projects.
