This is how the CASRI project is suggested to work.
There are two ways to initiate projects:
1) The research group supervisors can initiate a project with a short abstract in which they give some details about the focus of the project, its goals and methodology. They post this project description on the CASLAR website and invite participants and ask for further input. Scholars from all over the world can notify the supervisors through email about their interest in participation and give further input about the project. Then the supervisors will form a research group and make suggestions concerning who does what. When the project is finalized it will be posted on the website with a list of participants. Supervisors can initiate more than one project.
2) Scholars from all over the world can initiate projects. First they should fill in the CASRI Form that is attached and will also be available on the CASLAR website, and email it to the selected group’s supervisors. Based on the form details the supervisors will decide in consultation with the initiating scholar(s) if the project is worth pursuing. If they decide to go ahead with the project they will advise the initiator on how to prepare the proposal. When the proposal is accepted it will be posted on the CASLAR website with an invitation for participants to join and give further input to the project. When the project is finalized it will be posted on the website with a list of participants.
