The COST Action is publishing a book on the Science of Citizen Science. Currently, authors work on their chapters.
The authors' meeting serves 1) quality control, and 2) an overal coherence of the book.

If you have time, competencies, and interest to support us in developing these outputs, you are welcome to apply.

Preparations:

  • Each chapter will be read by 2 authors of different chapters + at least 1 editor
    • 1 author from the same section
    • 1 author from a different section
  • All chapters are available for all authors before the meeting so that people can skim through/read more than 1 chapter.
  • Reviewers prepare written feedback for the chapter they have thoroughly read -> according to a form? (similar to feedback forms for journal peer review)
  • Ask everyone to read the abstracts of all the chapters so that we don’t lose time during the feedback session having to introduce the content of the chapter.
