I need one or more online researcher(s) who know(s) how to extract information from the internet. The information will be of scholarly nature in most cases so people who have access to scholarly journals and databases will be given preference.
Please remember that I am not interested in someone who will just cut/paste keywords in google and will return all URLs.
The successful candidate(s) would be given an outline with a few keywords. He/she will have to use the outline and/or keywords (and his/her brain) to extract information from online/offline databases (In case you have access to offline libraries, that is equally good).
Please remember that I DON'T prefer information from ordinary websites. I would need at least 50-60% of the researched info from scholarly journals and books.
For this research (and future research projects that I would probably give you), you must try to consult at least 6 sources for every 1000 words. Preferably, around 30-50% would be from Scholarly Journals, 30% from books and 30-40% from authentic websites (authentic websites mean like websites of recognized, famous organizations or government websites like World Bank, UNICEF, Microsoft, Shell, etc.)
When you find journal articles or books on the required topic, you will have to cut/paste that info in a separate word file, mention the source from which you took that info (including page number) and compile all info about one title in a separate Word File.
For example, if you are researching sustainable business strategy, you can find hundreds of articles on it. But I DON'T WANT just the names, details, and urls of the articles.
You will have to select the relevant info from each article your self and then, you will have to cut/paste the info into a word file with reference to the article and page number of that info.
You MUST know how to use Google Operators.
Although the detail seems long, the job is nothing more than searching on the net, extracting information and compiling it in one place. Remember, you DON'T have to write anything yourself. You JUST need to cut/paste the required info and compile it in a logical flow.
I have attached a sample which will tell you what and how you need to deliver.
Important: I know that many providers just cut/paste a prewritten bid detail for all bids. To show that you have read all the instructions, YOU MUST start your bid with "Dear Valued Customer".
I think I have explained it well. I am myself a researcher and know how to do it but I just don't have enough time.
Low/reasonable price is as important to me as the quality. To be precise, I am looking for the best combination of price and quality.
I have selected 30 days time for this project, but I may end it whenever I find a suitable person at a reasonable cost. Also, if you are busy now in other work, you can still bid. I will need more than one researcher in the near future. Another possibility is that I will open another project especially for you.
Please also inform how many words you can research per day. In addition, if possible, please send a sample of your RESEARCH work in a PM. Also mention what the research aimed to find.
IMPORTANT: Bid for the amount (in US$) you will take to research and deliver 10,000 words.
The amount I have in mind is around $2-4 for every 1000 words and I won’t consider a bid above $8/1000 words.
IMPORTANT: You must NOT use any illegal way to complete this project.
Thanks in Advance,
I am thankful to all of you for taking the time to bid on this project. As for now, I am selecting a bidder whose rates are really reasonable and he has shown some proof that he can do what I want and how I want. However, I have noted all the bids and I would probably need more people in future. So the place is always open and I might invite one or more of you on some new projects.
