Cet appel à contributions est lancé pour le numéro spécial de la revue en accès libre Etica&Politica. Date limite d'envoi des résumés le 31 mai 2022.


The identification of “citizen science” as an umbrella term, or “common name” gathering a “wide range of activities and practices” (Haklay et al, 2020), together with a raising interest for renewed collaborations between research and society (Mahr et al, 2018), has caused a steady increase in visibility for citizen science practices in recent years. Despite all, still the definition of citizen science is problematic (Haklay et al, 2021), and citizen science as a field seems somewhat resistant to obeying a limited set of definitions and instead attracts discussions about what type of activities and practices should be included in it.
