    Citizen Science and Scholarly communication: issues, challenges and opportunities for libraries

    The development of citizen science raises new questions in the field of scientific information. How do we write science when we're not aiming for a purely academic reception? How can we rethink the challenges of collective authoring in the light of these new practices? How can we identify publications relating to scientific projects when all projects are still careful not to mention the source of their data too explicitly? These and other questions are at the heart of our research on the impact of citizen science on the way science is written, published and promoted. Our communication will aim to understand what is at stake for librarians in these issues.
