    Marine debris and plastic in our oceans is a global issue of increasing concern. However, the monitoring of litter and debris is challenging at the global scale because of disconnected local organizations and the use of paper and pen for documentation. The Marine Debris Tracker mobile app and citizen science program allow for the collection of global standardized data at a scale, speed, and effici... View full abstract»

    Although current literature highlights a wide variety of potential citizen science project outcomes, no prior studies have systematically assessed performance against a comprehensive set of criteria. The study reported here is the first to propose a novel framework for assessing citizen science projects against multiple dimensions of success. The authors apply this framework to a sample of project... View full abstract»

    Web-based citizen science projects collect logs of interactions between volunteers and project websites. In this article, the authors present visualization techniques that can be used to infer volunteer behavior in such projects, using the Galaxy Zoo astronomy citizen science project as a test case. This information could be used to shed light on why volunteers join or leave a project-a greater un... View full abstract»
