Abstract

Highlights

• The Ten Principles of Citizen Science were developed by an international
community of citizen science practitioners and researchers to
set out their shared view of the characteristics that underpin high quality
citizen science. They are currently available in 26 languages.

• The Ten Principles provide a framework against which to assess
new and existing citizen science initiatives with the aim of fostering
excellence in all aspects of citizen science.

• At a time when citizen science is rapidly expanding but not yet
mainstreamed within traditional research or policy processes, the
Ten Principles provide governments, decision-makers, researchers
and project leaders with a common set of core principles to consider
when funding, developing or assessing citizen science projects.
