Hello all, I spoke to Mia about asking for help with my PhD research and she gave me approval to post this request for survey responses.
I am currently working on my PhD at King's College London in the Department of Digital Humanities and I'm doing research into the sustainability of digital communities that form around crowdsourcing projects just like By the People.
The research is based on a sample survey of crowdsource projects in cultural heritage from a wide variety of institutions both large and small. What it seeks to explore is the major factors that contribute to building collaborative work between volunteers and institutional stakeholders in these projects. This requires finding out what motivates people to not just simply start working on a project like the ones found in By the People but what keeps them coming back time and time again. Further, the research looks into what volunteers need to have in terms of education, support, and communication from a project as well as what they expect to get in return from all the work put into a project.
