Special Issue - Citizen Science and the Role in Sustainable Development

This Special Issue of the Open Access Journal Sustainability aims to discuss the role citizen science can play in monitoring and implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We envisage this Special Issue becoming a cornerstone of the scientific literature, which illustrates the potential of citizen science in the SDG process. We are interested in receiving papers from all disciplines which illustrate via case studies and existing projects how citizen science contributes to achieving the SDGs on a local, regional, and national level. We also welcome contributions which outline the future potential of citizen science and the role it can play in reaching the SDGs. We are furthermore interested in contributions which showcase the link of citizen science and the potential of integrating it with other traditional and non-traditional data sources such as earth observation and big data in general.

Current deadline for manuscript submission: 31. October 2020, 23.59h CET
