Weekly Press Search

A brief guide on the Weekly Press Search for HolonIQ's Global Research Community

Updated over a week ago

The Weekly Press Search is a short project conducted each week by HolonIQ's Global Research Community. Each week, HolonIQ research contributors conduct approximately one hour of research on an agreed country/region/industry to find key market developments that have happened throughout the week.

Once a research contributor has opted-in, they will receive an email briefing each Thursday outlining the key areas to research. These areas do not change from week to week.

The weekly press search is due for submission by Sunday night in your local timezone by replying to the weekly email with English headlines and links from your press search.

Contributors target a minimum of 10 high-quality news articles that focus on key events and important market developments that have occurred in the current week for full credit and payment. Our press search quality ratings below provide guidance on how we rate submissions and the credit paid out based on those ratings. Contributors receive a weekly press-search rating and payment in full on the Monday following submission.

Weekly bonuses will be paid for very high-quality submissions from time to time.
