Citizen Science as a Pillar of Open and Collaborative Science

The article presents some of the key aspects of the citizen science concept, and outlines the importance of citizen science as one of the pillars of open science. Citizen science also represents an important part of the so-called cultural changes in research work, where collaboration and networking between various stakeholders is encouraged. Academic and especially university libraries play a key role in providing the conditions for the implementation of citizen science. Thanks to their infrastructure, public libraries and other local educational institutions also play a role, and connecting these different types of libraries is very important. The second part of the article focuses on the accessibility of the knowledge generated by research institutions, and how it plays a crucial role in citizen science. The general accessibility of scientific works promotes social development as well as the scientific excellence of research institutions.
