[CASCI Reading Group] 9/12 by Jonathan Brier

September 12th, 2017 by

For the first time CASCI attendees the format is read the paper before the meeting time and a discussion leader will give a few prompts and we tent to try to respond to and think about as a starting point:

1. What are the key claims? Do you believe/accept them? Why or why not?

2. What existing theories and literature does this paper build on? How does it go beyond prior work?

3. What phenomena in the domain of communities, technology, and information (broadly defined) might you apply these ideas to?

This week (Tuesday Sept 12 at 11am in 2116 Hornbake) we are reading: Kullenberg C, Kasperowski D (2016) What Is Citizen Science? – A Scientometric Meta-Analysis. PLOS ONE 11(1): e0147152.
