Fields of Knowledge invites professors, librarians, and other research scholars to write short research guides for publication in The Infography, a process of citing the superlative and excellent sources of information about their subjects of expertise. Most specialists already have such citations readily available from research notes or from books, articles, course syllabi, or web sites they have written. The benefits for the authors of these research guides include cash royalties, and the identities of the authors remain confidential to protect them from public inquiry.
Robotic keyword searches, popularity gauges, in-house geeks, paid rankings in search-engine results, and by-chance browsing have gained alarming leverage upon students' search for knowledgeacademic authority is being usurped by, well, technonauts. Knowledge must continue to be refined and publicized by professors and other accredited scholars, and The Infography re-asserts this tradition at the forefront of technology to improve the research process. It is a reference tool designed to propel the value of professorial guidance and scholarly experience into the Internet paradigm.
The "Index" to the right offers information about sharing your research recommendations with the Infography project. If you already have a list of choice citations (from a syllabus, book, article, or web page) and wish to send them to us now, quickly and easily, go to the self-explanatory Content Submission Form.
