Zooniverse is the world's largest and most succesful citizen science platform. Over 1.5 million registered volunteers have taken part since the platform's beginning, and it currently hosts over 50 live projects across multiple fields of research with tens of thousands of active volunteers worldwide.
SOCIAM works closely together with the Zooniverse team, and our numerous studies of the platform has helped Zooniverse better understand the behaviour and motivations of its volunteers. This in turn has enabled Zooniverse to make their platform better suit the needs and interests of their crowd. Our research activities have also involved the development of observational dashboards for the Zooniverse team to better understand and manage their community.
