The goal of this project was to conduct a comprehensive study of mature Citizen Science programs to develop guidelines that will be helpful for less developed programs. Through in-depth interviews and research of many organizations, their various methods of data collection, archival and dissemination were studied and evaluated to gauge the possibilities for current Citizen Science programs. This report, in conjunction with the developed guidelines, provides less developed Citizen Science programs with new ideas for the advancement of their organizations.
