We are looking for students (advanced undergrads or graduate) or others with experience in biology, genetics, medicine, or related fields to take part in an online task. In the task you will help us annotate a collection of scientific abstracts. You will be shown one scientific abstract at a time, and asked to evaluate how well possible simplifications of terminology preserve the meaning of the text while making it more accessible to non-experts. Pay is a $15 Amazon gift certificate per block of twenty abstracts (expected time to complete one block is 30-45 minutes or less). Up to 5 blocks are available ($75).
Send an email to Yea Seul Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) describing your experience in biology, genetics, medicine or a related field (e.g., biostats, chemistry). You will be sent a link to the online task. You can preview the interface here, but must email to be given a link to the blocks for pay.
We have a limited number of slots and ask that you complete the task by Dec 25.
