NASA Community Announcement: ROSES Funding for Citizen Science

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Citizen Science is a form of open collaboration in which individuals or organizations participate voluntarily in the scientific process in various ways.

This year we are highlighting the new Science Mission Directorate (SMD) policy inviting investigators to incorporate citizen science into their research. ROSES proposers will be asked to answer a question in NSPIRES to indicate if their proposals incorporate citizen science components.

Proposals submitted to any ROSES-2019 call, unless otherwise noted in the program element, may be entirely or partially citizen science-based. Citizen science projects shall be held to the same rigorous standards as any SMD science program.  

Proposers are encouraged to read Science Policy Document SPD-33, which provides additional information about standards for evaluating citizen science projects. 

 

SPD-33 is available here: https://smd-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/science-red/s3fs-public/atoms/files/SPD%2033%20Citizen%20Science.pdf

 

Additional funding may be available for proposals incorporating citizen science.

 

For more information on ongoing SMD citizen science projects, see https://science.nasa.gov/citizenscientists or email Marc.J.Kuchner@nasa.gov.
