The MICS Online Guidance has been specifically designed for citizen science practitioners and academics. It provides insights into the various impacts of citizen science and why it is important to measure them, how citizen science initiatives can be co-designed for impact, and how to measure their impacts. The MICS Online Guidance guides users through available resources such as tools, scientific papers, training materials and networks. 

The guidance featured here has been produced, tested and/or reviewed by the MICS project consortium. Many of the resources are well-documented and have already been used in citizen science initiatives by MICS or beyond. Most descriptions include a key reference, so you can explore more about their background or their application.
