Field science consists of expeditions that collect data in order to add to the scholarship, or knowledge in a given discipline, bound for peer reviewed publication. Relevant disciplines include, but are not limited to – anthropology, archaeology, wildlife, botany, earth sciences, marine and freshwater research, ecology, geography, paleontology. Priority will be given to expeditions tackling ambitious research questions over survey data. Uniqueness and rarity of the data collected will be taken into account.
