New Futures Study Findings Have Been Reported by D. Wechsler and Colleagues (Crowdsourcing as a method of transdisciplinary research-Tapping the full potential of participants)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- Current study results on Futures have been published. According to news reporting originating in Wuppertal, Germany, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "Within the scope of citizen science projects, crowdsourcing has already expanded into scientific application areas. In this, its scientific potential is only partly exhausted, however."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "It will be shown that transdisciplinary research is made up in content and structural aspects in such a way that crowdsourcing can fully unfold as a research method through varied participation possibilities, reflective processes and use of contemporary technical possibilities. Furthermore, mutual learning, understanding and the dissemination of knowledge strongly profits from effects that even result automatically in this context."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The scientific application of crowdsourcing represented here makes high demands on project management, but it is expected to turn out as an effective research method precisely in the area of transdisciplinary research."
