  • Data Quality from a Community-Based, Water-Quality Monitoring Project in the Yukon River Basin

    Herman-Mercer, Nicole; Antweiler, Ronald; Wilson, Nicole; Mutter, Edda; Toohey, Ryan; Schuster, Paul (2018)
    This paper examines the quality of data collected by the Indigenous Observation Network, a community-based water-quality project in the Yukon River Basin of Alaska and Canada. The Indigenous Observation Network relies on community technicians to collect surface-water samples from as many as fifty locations to achieve their goals of monitoring the quality of the Yukon River and major tributaries in the basin and maintaining a long-term record of baseline data against which future changes can b...

    Comparison of Two Citizen Scientist Methods for Collecting Pond Water Samples for Environmental DNA Studies

    Buxton, Andrew; Groombridge, Jim; Griffiths, Richard (2018)
    The use of environmental DNA (eDNA) for the survey of aquatic species offers a wide range of benefits over conventional surveys and has begun to be used by citizen scientists. One advantage of eDNA over conventional survey protocols is the comparative ease with which samples can be collected over a wide geographic area. However, eDNA collection protocols vary widely between different studies, promoting a need to identify an optimum method. Collection protocols include ethanol precipitation an...

    Finding Pathways to More Equitable and Meaningful Public-Scientist Partnerships

    Soleri, Daniela; Long, Jonathan W.; Ramirez-Andreotta, Mónica D.; Eitemiller, Rose; Pandya, Rajul (2016)
    For many, citizen science is exciting because of the possibility for more diverse, equitable partnerships in scientific research with outcomes considered meaningful and useful by all, including public participants. This was the focus of a symposium we organized at the 2015 conference of the Citizen Science Association. Here we synthesize points made by symposium participants and our own reflections. Professional science has a participation problem that is part of a larger equity problem in so...

    Citizen Science for Mining the Biomedical Literature

    Tsueng, Ginger; Nanis, Steven M.; Fouquier, Jennifer; Good, Benjamin M.; Su, Andrew I. (2016)
    Projects: NIH | TRAINING (5U54GM114833-02)
    Biomedical literature represents one of the largest and fastest growing collections of unstructured biomedical knowledge. Finding critical information buried in the literature can be challenging. To extract information from free-flowing text, researchers need to: 1. identify the entities in the text (named entity recognition), 2. apply a standardized vocabulary to these entities (normalization), and 3. identify how entities in the text are related to one another (relationship extraction). Res...

    Public Perceptions of Citizen Science

    Lewandowski, Eva; Caldwell, Wendy; Elmquist, Dane; Oberhauser, Karen (2017)
    Members of the public are the foundation and the backbone of citizen science, but much remains unknown about how the public views citizen science. We conducted a survey of public familiarity with, and perceptions of, citizen science. We found that less than half of respondents were familiar with the term “citizen science,” but over 70% were familiar with the concept by another name. Most respondents were more confident in hypothetical citizen science findings when professional scientists were...
