Research talk:Subject recruitment
List of approved research projects
On another page, someone asked which page said that approval was required to do research. Here is that discussion. On the talk page user:DarTar says that approval is required, so I just added the statement that approval is required to this page. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:09, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
- I think there should be a process for granting and displaying approval. Now that I have started to look at this, I see that there are some researchers who come to this project, ask for a lot from Wikipedia users, and then do not adequately offer a return of results which makes it fair for them to come here and use the project's user base in the name of good will or promoting Wikipedia. I think that frequently researchers ask users to do long surveys to improve Wikipedia then just leave without doing anything but taking volunteer time.
- The approval process which seems to be in place now is that if researchers create a project page on meta which describes their project and contact information then they get approval. This seems good to me, and I think that if anyone did a review and passed or failed the research proposal based on the researchers' making a minimal effort to describe themselves and agreeing to at least green OA, then that would cut out many researchers who otherwise are not contributing meaningfully. Is that the scheme that is in place now? Blue Rasberry (talk) 21:14, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
- Lane, thanks for chiming in, I tried to address these questions in my response to this thread on wiki-research-l. I appreciate the documentation on the review procedure and its purpose is quite sketchy, any help is very welcome --DarTar (talk) 07:00, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
