WE ARE LOOKING FOR CONTRIBUTORS AND ADVISORS
AS A HANDS-ON CONTRIBUTOR WHO WANTS TO BE PUBLISHED, OR AS A SEASONED ADVISOR WHO CAN GUIDE THE PROJECT FROM YOUR DISTANCE, WE ARE LOOKING FOR LEADING VOICES IN THE FIELD TO JOIN US.
JOIN GEIST AS A CONTRIBUTOR
Geist is looking for contributors to become co-authors in our research. We offer a participatory method, a rich dataset for you to bring your own insights, and, of course, the credit to your work in our report.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER JOURNALS AND RESEARCH INITIATIVES?
We are using cutting-edge technology, design methods and a start-tup spirit to discover new cultural codes, region by region. You can contribute from anywhere, at anytime, and with the resources you have. Everyone helping will be properly credited — we know how important this is for academic researchers. Our authorship is distributed.
WHAT WILL I DO AS A CONTRIBUTOR?
You can contribute with the resources you have. It's that simple. People are busy, we know. You may participate asynchronously (no need to join long meetings). You may guide us on how to structure our first survey. You may run an interview with our subjects. You may help us to understand the data we collected, with post-its and simple insights that go to our book. You may even take our dataset and run your own article. It's up to you, really.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
As a contributor, you will be part of a network of renowned academics, designers, consultants and authors.
You will learn new methods of collaboration for transdisciplinary results and scientific diversity.
You will have access to datasets, media files and other resources, and the liberty to run your own conclusions and take them to create new articles and academic production with them (provided, of course, that you credit Geist as the initial source).
You will be published in a peer-reviewed book (including ISBN and DOI), indexed in the best databases for digital humanities.
Our book will be distributed online and in print to a growing network of partner Universities, starting in Scandinavia.
You may participate in our roadshow, being interviewed for blog posts, podcasts, lectures, workshops, seminars in corporations and Universities, and other public events.
JOIN GEIST AS AN ADVISOR
We are looking for seasoned advisors to become part of three of our advisory boards: research advisors, design advisors and business advisors.
I LIKE THE IDEA, BUT I AM A BUSY PERSON.
WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO AS AN ADVISOR?
Just as much as you can. We designed the process with the business of our people in mind. You will get about three or four emails a year. What you are able to do from there is up to you.
WHAT WILL I DO AS AN ADVISOR?
You may give a hint on which direction you think we should go. You may want to review the survey method. You may just want to read the whole thing when it's nearly done, and give your 2-cents before publication. You may want to write an introduction to the manuscript. You may want to share it with your social media. It's up to you.
