  "description": "<p>CSI-COP deliverable D2.1 is a public research report realised from the exhaustive literature review<br>\nconducted for Task 2.1 by the involved partners in the research phase of the EU Horizon2020 science<br>\nwith and for society (SwafS) project Citizen scientists investigating cookies and app GDPR<br>\ncompliance (CSI-COP). With the report produced from the next T2.2 research task, deliverable D2.2<br>\n(due M06), D2.1 will lead to the development of CSI-COP project&rsquo;s framework for best practices in<br>\ninclusive citizen science recruitment and engagement.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nD2.1 focused on CSI-COP&rsquo;s research questions:<br>\n1. Whether citizen scientists developed scientific skills and competences?<br>\n2. If participation acted as a motivator leading to informal and formal science education of<br>\nyoung people and adults?<br>\n3. Whether participation countered perceived anti-intellectual attitudes in society?<br>\n4. Whether participation raised the scientific literacy of European citizens?<br>\n5. Whether participation promotes social inclusion and employability?<br>\n6. Best tools for citizen science reporting and interaction with researchers?<br>\n7. Best platform for managing citizen science&rsquo;s data collection?<br>\n8. What are the existing types of platforms used by citizen scientists and their experiences with<br>\nthem?<br>\n9. Challenges in the management of collected data?<br>\n10. Online support - requirements and experiences of citizen scientists?</p>\n\n<p>Summary of findings are:<br>\nA. Participation in citizen science projects provides further learning opportunities for inquiring<br>\nminds, with the activities extending the learning experience. As an informal learning<br>\nexperience, citizen science is notable for involving many of the procedures of formal science,<br>\nincluding gathering data, testing hypotheses, and modeling outcomes. Through engagement<br>\nwith professional scientists, citizen scientists gain valuable access to opportunity to learn and<br>\nto generate new knowledge.<br>\nB. Volunteers participate in citizen science projects for many reasons, such as a willingness and<br>\na desire to contribute to science, learn science, and for fun. Studies showed that volunteers&amp;#39;<br>\nmotivation to participate included a number of factors such as values, altruism and concern<br>\nfor others, understanding, social, career, ego protective, escape from negative feelings, ego<br>\nenhancement, personal growth and self-esteem.</p>\n\n<p>CSI-COP referred to various sources of information: journal articles, webpages, official reports,<br>\nbooks, book chapters, professional blogs, conference proceedings, doctoral theses, and other sources<br>\nof reliable information. The vast majority of the sources are journal articles (just under 56%).<br>\nCitizen science activity is well communicated through webpages and blogs (aggregate number of CSI-<br>\nCOP D2.1 source, 23.48%). Figure 1 illustrates a map of the spread of these sources. A massive<br>\nconcentration of citizen science activities exist in USA, Germany, UK, Australia and a few other<br>\ncountries.</p>\n\n<p>CSI-COP D2.1 full report of &lsquo;citizen science best practices&rsquo;, with detailed answers to the project&rsquo;s<br>\nresearch questions, please download from:<br>\n1.
