Call to incentivise the dissemination of research in the Social Sciences

-

The Social Observatory of ”la Caixa” is opening a call to support social researchers with an interest in disseminating their work via graphic and narrative formats.

This call seeks to develop 5 infographic narratives that shed light on Spain’s social reality through the visualisation of quantitative data obtained from original studies in the Social Sciences.


 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

  • Original studies describing current social needs in Spain.

  • Quantitative and up-to-date data.

  • Creative, easy-to-grasp and direct narratives that are capable of being supported by data visualisations.

 

 WE ARE OFFERING:

  • A commissioned order in the sum of €3,000.

  • All the necessary accompaniment to enable the original idea to be portrayed in an informative format.

 

 WE ARE ASKING FOR:

  • The beneficiaries to become authors of an article for the Social Observatory. They must write the texts that develop the narrative proposal and undertake to work closely with the Social Observatory of ”la Caixa” to transform their proposal into a previously unpublished article. These articles must comply with the quality standards of the Observatory, and the delivery deadline will be 3 months from the date when notification of the selected proposals is given.

  • The beneficiaries to sign a contract regulating the terms and conditions for the preparation of the article and the transfer of exploitation and transformation rights. The final article will be produced and disseminated by the Social Observatory of ”la Caixa”.

 

 WHO CAN SUBMIT AN APPLICATION:

  • The call is open to researchers or research teams of any nationality who carry out their activities in Spain, in universities, research centres or not-for-profit private organisations dedicated to research.
