Recommendations for Task Design [article]

Neal Reeves
2021 Zenodo  
A separated, slightly updated and more detailed version of the recommendations developed and described in D 5.2 (Final Guidelines for Task Design). This document is intended as a tool within the ACTION toolkit and will be iterated on and developed further as final insights are gathered through additional deliverables.

Final Guidelines for Task Design

Neal Reeves
2021 Zenodo  
This deliverable presents final guidelines on task design, building on earlier deliverable 5.1. We present high level recommendations from citizen science and scientific crowdsourcing administrators. We also present research conducted by the ACTION consortium on the topic of task design.

D6.5 - Policy brief on citizen science mainstreaming

Igno Notermans, Madeleine Cléa Montanari, Annelli Janssen, Katharina Hölscher, Antonella Passani, Neal Reeves, Gefion Thuermer
2022 Zenodo  
This document provides two sets of recommendations. First, it provides recommendations for the mainstreaming of citizen science for policymakers, policy workers, citizen science actors, and scientists, in this way capturing the broader policy ecosystem within which citizen science initiatives are embedded. We provide both, (1) specific recommendations specific to five EU countries: Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain & UK; and (2) general recommendations on themes that emerged from the

These recommendations have been developed through an iterative and co-creative process that involved policymakers, policy workers, citizen science actors, and scientists in interviews and masterclasses, next to document review. Second, it provides recommendations for the facilitation and delivery of citizen science projects - specifically focusing on increasing their economic impact. These recommendations are based on the insights and experiences gained from running the ACTION project including a citizen science accelerator programme.

Use of Salmonella phage P22 for transduction in Escherichia coli

B L Neal, P K Brown, P R Reeves
1993 Journal of Bacteriology  
A cosmid (pPR1347) carrying both the rfb gene cluster and the rfc gene of a Salmonella group B serovar has been constructed; Escherichia coli K-12 strains carrying this cosmid produce long-chain O antigen, are sensitive to phage P22, and can be transduced by P22. Some of the benefits of P22 transduction are now available for studying E. coli and potentially other genera.

Supporting clinical leadership through action: The nurse consultant role

Box: What does this paper contribute to the wider global clinical community? • Organisations should invest in clinical leaders' support to maximise outcomes. • External facilitation should enable clinical leaders to maximise their achievements in all four dimensions of their role. • External facilitation and peer support should help clinical leaders recognise the importance of self-leadership and their own potential to influence.

A high sensitivity refractometer based upon a long period grating Mach–Zehnder interferometer

T. Allsop, R. Reeves, D. J. Webb, I. Bennion, R. Neal
2002 Review of Scientific Instruments  
A low cost interrogation scheme is demonstrated for a refractometer based on an in-line fiber long period grating ͑LPG͒ Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Using this interrogation scheme the minimum detectable change in refractive index of ⌬nϳ1.8ϫ10 Ϫ6 is obtained, which is the highest resolution achieved using a fiber LPG device, and is comparable to precision techniques used in the industry including high performance liquid chromatography and ultraviolet spectroscopy.

From Crowd to Community

Neal Reeves, Ramine Tinati, Sergej Zerr, Max G. Van Kleek, Elena Simperl
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing - CSCW '17  
Online citizen science projects have been increasingly used in a variety of disciplines and contexts to enable large-scale scientific research. The successes of such projects have encouraged the development of customisable platforms to enable anyone to run their own citizen science project. However, the process of designing and building a citizen science project remains complex, with projects requiring both human computation and social aspects to sustain user motivation and achieve project
more » ... . In this paper, we conduct a systematic survey of 48 citizen science projects to identify common features and functionality. Supported by online community literature, we use structured walkthroughs to identify different mechanisms used to encourage volunteer contributions across four dimensions: task visibility, goals, feedback, and rewards. Our findings contribute to the ongoing discussion on citizen science design and the relationship between community and microtask design for achieving successful outcomes.

Academic Proficiency in Children After Early Congenital Heart Disease Surgery

2013 Pediatric Cardiology  
Children with early surgery for congenital heart disease (CHD) are known to have impaired neurodevelopment; their performance on school-age achievement tests and their need for special education remains largely unexplored. The study aimed to determine predictors of academic achievement at school-age and placement in special education services among early CHD surgery survivors. Children with CHD surgery at <1 year of age from 1/1/1998─12/31/2003 at the Arkansas Children's Hospital were

Infants were matched to an Arkansas Department of Education database containing standardized assessments at early school-age and special education codes. Predictors for achieving proficiency in literacy and mathematics and the receipt of special education were determined. 256 children who attended Arkansas public schools and had surgery as infants were included; 77.7% had either school-age achievement-test scores or special education codes of mental retardation or multiple disabilities. Scores on achievement tests for these children were 7-13% lower than Arkansas students (p<0.01). They had an 8-fold increase in the receipt of special education due to multiple disabilities (OR 10.66, 95% CI 4.23─22.35) or mental retardation (OR 4.96, 95% CI 2.6─8.64). Surgery after the neonatal period was associated with reduced literacy proficiency and cardiopulmonary bypass during the first surgery was associated with reduced mathematics proficiency. Children who had early CHD surgery were less proficient on standardized school assessments and many received special education. This is concerning since achievement-test scores at school-age are "real-world" predictors of long-term outcomes.
