For the week of 29 February 2016

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

The Journal of Science Communication has published Understanding drivers, barriers and information sources for public participation in marine citizen science. "Interviews were conducted with 110 marine users to elicit their salient beliefs about recording marine species in a citizen science project. [...] Most of the people surveyed (n = 106) emphasised the importance of well-designed technological interfaces to assist their data collection, without which they would be unlikely to engage in the project." You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
