Co-created Citizen Science projects are considered to enhance active, inclusive, and wide participation, and significantly improve the quality of public participation. However, fully co-created projects are still rare in CS, where many projects aim primarily at overcoming the capacity of current research structures and involve participants only for the collection, and sometimes the analysis, of large-scale data. In addition, in many research areas professional researchers are used to having full control of their methodology and processes; in the majority of cases, they consider CS late in the process, when they already have a clear and well-defined idea of their research plans and needs, with little or no space left for the contribution of citizens.
How can the Citizen Science community of practitioners better encourage and support real co-creation?

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
