Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Social science

Janis L. Dickinson mostly deals with Ecology, Citizen science, Cooperative breeding, Nest and Bluebird. Her research on Ecology focuses in particular on Landscape ecology. Her studies in Citizen science integrate themes in fields like Ecology and Community-based monitoring, Environmental resource management.

Her Environmental resource management research includes elements of Cumulative effects and Urban ecology. Her Cooperative breeding study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biological dispersal, Woodpecker and Evolutionary ecology. Her Nest study incorporates themes from Philopatry, Juvenile, Demography, Spite and Garcia.

Her most cited work include:

  • Citizen Science: A Developing Tool for Expanding Science Knowledge and Scientific Literacy (1140 citations)
  • Citizen Science as an Ecological Research Tool: Challenges and Benefits (1011 citations)
  • The current state of citizen science as a tool for ecological research and public engagement (726 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Janis L. Dickinson mainly focuses on Ecology, Citizen science, Nest, Demography and Bluebird. She has researched Ecology in several fields, including Zoology and Biological dispersal. Her study in Citizen science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental ethics and Environmental resource management.

The concepts of her Nest study are interwoven with issues in Brood, Brood parasite and Inclusive fitness. The study incorporates disciplines such as Paternal care, Philopatry, Aggression, Competition and Helping behavior in addition to Demography. Her studies deal with areas such as Woodpecker and Evolutionary ecology as well as Cooperative breeding.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (48.48%)
  • Citizen science (21.21%)
  • Nest (18.94%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Citizen science (21.21%)
  • Public relations (6.06%)
  • Sperm (5.30%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Citizen science, Public relations, Sperm, Cell biology and Manduca sexta are her primary areas of study. Her Citizen science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Environmental ethics, Multimedia and Social science. Her Landscape ecology research extends to Environmental ethics, which is thematically connected.

Combining a variety of fields, including Public relations, Knowledge management and Mandate, are what the author presents in her essays. In her research, Janis L. Dickinson performs multidisciplinary study on Charisma and Ecology. Her Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Zoology.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

    1. What Is Our Impact?: Toward a Unified Framework for Evaluating Outcomes of Citizen Science Participation (12 citations)
    1. Children and Nature: Following the Trail to Environmental Attitudes and Behavior (8 citations)
    1. Who Poses the Question? Using Citizen Science to Help K–12 Teachers Meet the Mandate for Inquiry (6 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Social science
  • Social psychology

Janis L. Dickinson focuses on Social psychology, Public relations, Citizen science, Developmental psychology and Knowledge management. In the field of Social psychology, her study on Norm overlaps with subjects such as Impression formation. Janis L. Dickinson incorporates Public relations and Mandate in her research.
