Independent Scholar Survey
The purpose of this study is to identify different models of scholarship, and how these models can be better supported. The results of the study will be published to provide information that can help other scholars with their career development. A livelihood approach is used as the framework of this study, so that scholarship is viewed as one component of a holistic livelihood.

The Ronin Institute mission: To create a new model for scholarly research that recognizes that the world outside of traditional academia is filled with smart, educated, passionate people who have a lot to offer to the world of scholarship. We aim to transform the way that scholarly research is coordinated and funded. Ultimately, we want anyone who is interested in pursuing high-quality scholarly research to be able to do so. Moreover, we want these people to be able to pursue their research in a way that is consistent with all of their life’s priorities.
