2011 Public Participation in Scientific Research
In April 2011, a group of 60 researchers and practitioners convened at the American Museum of Natural History to discuss factors that influence specific outcomes, as part of an ongoing conversation regarding the field public participation in scientific research (PPSR). PPSR
PPSR refers to initiatives in which the public is involved in one or more phases of scientific research – from defining questions to using results – and encompasses citizen science, participatory monitoring, community science, and a variety of other endeavors and approaches. This evolving field offers significant opportunities for biodiversity conservation by addressing the increasing demand for information and the need for action.
