What is the OpenScientist Blog?

This blog is designed to keep people current on all the happenings in citizen science and help them get involved. We will do this by:

  1. Promoting new and existing opportunities for people to get involved in citizen science.
  2. Chronicling the successes, failures, and everyday exploits of the scientists and their projects.
  3. Explaining science projects in plain English so everyone can understand the work and help them make meaningful contributions to it. Or at the very least, explain it will enough for everyone to appreciate the work.
  4. Helping people connect to science projects that they are most interested in.
Every day we will have more information for you. Some days we may link to an exciting news story, other days to a new project being developed, and other days we will take an in-depth look at an existing project and explain it in thorough, but easily understandable, detail.
