I've been attending the Oral History Association's conference this week, and the association has an Independent Practitioner's Task Force. They created a toolkit which includes discussions about how to determine a scope of work, negotiate contracts, thoughts on independent practitioner's intellectual property, portfolios, crediting, and a whole host of other considerations. While specifically tailored to oral history, I thought it might be of interest to other independent scholars.
I appreciate the efforts of the task force to put this together and am grateful for their expertise and willingness to share.
