Conference presentations (usually Powerpoints) count, though.
I already have most typed up in a file that I was planing on releasing as an online book publication for free download.
Well, that's not nearly as hard as getting into a conference and doing presentations!
The problem with this though is it must be documented with equipment and video, not just my personal typed notes. My personal typed notes
don't account for anything, as anyone can type anything, my words alone don't prove anything. Also, I am the only test subject at the moment, so
having another subject or two would prove how easily it can be used and adapted to.
Research done on the self doesn't really count. You need a methodology that describes:
* the population that's covered by your research including full demographics
* how you got a "statistically significant" random sample of people
* demographics on your subjects
* the hypotheses for the research question and the null hypotheses
* the IRB statement or something similar for human research.
If I do the online free book publication download, I can easily insert images and video into the pages.
Interesting approach. Since you're going to do a free ebook, you can certainly discuss it here.
Very plan and simple though, I need the lab equipment to finish the controlled studies of the projects. Also, several video cameras with a hand
full of good devoted camera operators to double as eyewitnesses. Then a place to act as grounds for the study.
Well, I wish you the very best on this!
I like the PowerPoint idea. That's the same as OpenOffice, right?
Yes. Powerpoint will read it (if you save it in the right format.) This is the standard way that research is given at conferences... and in class
once you hit the Masters' level and start doing original research.
I was thinking one way I might be able to get the lab equipment for free is if I converse with the companies that make the equipment, tell them
what I'm working on and offer to advertise them and their products when I go public with my projects.
That works once in awhile. Not very often, though.
BTW, the "cameraman as witness" is not a point of concern. Data verification takes care of itself in the methodological triangulation, statistical
tests, and so forth.)
