Abstract

The paper deals with a current status of distributed research projects. The terminology relating to various project types is clarified, i.e. scientific crowdsourcing, crowd science, citizen science etc. The experience of organizing and maintaining distributed research is generalized. Key management aspects of crowd science projects and of citizen science projects are noted as well. It is shown how modern information technologies are contributing to the development of new areas of distributed research. Attention is paid to the practice of distributed research projects in the field of human sciences.
