Abstract

Previous CSCW studies on citizen science have focused on supporting data collection, rather than data sharing among a wider audience. Here we describe the process by which citizen science data are collaboratively shared by individual and organizational social actors. Three sets of collaborative efforts are essential for enabling data to travel through the online environments: creating shareable data, assuring data quality, and setting up data sharing partnerships.
