What is the Citizen Science Alliance?

The CSA is a collaboration of scientists, software developers and educators who collectively develop, manage and utilise internet-based citizen science projects in order to further science itself, and the public understanding of both science and of the scientific process. These projects use the time, abilities and energies of a distributed community of citizen scientists who are our collaborators.

Our projects live within the ‘Zooniverse’, the home of Citizen Science on the web. Each is inspired by a science team who provide the initial ideas, the reassurance that what we’re doing can make a real contribution and an audience who are willing to use the end result. We are working with a wide variety of partners, from classicists to climate scientists and ecologists to planetary scientists. View all projects.

Take part

If you’re looking to take part as a citizen scientist you can find our collection of projects over at the Zooniverse.

If your research could benefit from a citizen science project, find out how you can build your own project with the project builder or contact us on collab@zooniverse.org if you have a custom project in mind.
