[ Mueller, M. et al. 2012. The Future of Citizen Science. Democracy and Education Vol. 20. Article 1. ] Mueller, Tippins and Bryan focus on the impact of citizen science both on scientific research and on the general public, particularly its impact on children and schools. They argue that a more diverse, open and democratic citizen science approach can better address both the concerns of the community and extant environmental problems, while also better engaging citizens into the conservation process.
