Re: Researcher pay

Dear Jon-Christian,

I would not recommend paying hourly because Moscow archives are so time-consuming that it takes forever to order, pick up, copy etc. I think you should offer a flat rate for the project that you want to be done. I'm not sure about the amount because I don't know how much you need in an archive.

Researcher pay

I'm using a researcher in Moscow, RF, and would like some advice on pay rates/schedules. This is archival work and will involve some billable copying from the archives but some digital photography by the researcher. Hourly? Contract a price by task? Amount?
