    We live in an age when good policies are assumed to be evidence-based.  And that evidential base is assumed to be at its best when expressed in numbers.  

    The digital information may be derived from quantitative data organised in statistics, or from qualitative data organised in indicators. Either way, evidence in digital form provides the accepted foundation of policy arguments over a very broad range of issues. In the policy realm there are frequent debates over particular policy issues and their associated evidence.

    DIY Science includes a great variety of tendencies, variously described as amateur, ‘garage’, ‘citizens’, ‘extreme citizen’ and activist. Although now small and marginal, they will surely grow, along with their challenges to mainstream science.There will be problems to be resolved, as established science loses its monopoly of accredited status in the provision of knowledge and advice.  But the challenge should be productive of new thinking and new practices, enriching science in many ways as the two streams interact.
    There are also internal challenges to DIY science.
