A University Project is simply a collection of new linked entries on a given subject that meet the criteria for the Edited Guide. With that in mind, you can choose any subject you like so long as none of your entries will be duplicating material already in the Edited Guide (for instance, we will not accept updates as projects).
There are two types of University Project:
- Solo-written Projects
- Collaborative Projects
Some Researchers might have enough knowledge about their subject to write the entire project themselves - which is impressive but can leave you with a lot more work than you might be able to handle. The reward is that once the project is completed and has entered the Edited Guide, you will gain a Field Researcher badge on your Personal Space.Collaborative Projects
Most projects are collaborative. For collaborative projects, the person who co-ordinates the project will receive a Field Researcher badge on their Personal Space. If any Researcher has contributed significantly to five or more entries in the project, they may also qualify for a Field Researcher badge. It will be up to the project co-ordinator to let us know of any individuals who qualify.Continued page 3/14
