Consultancy for individuals

DABATEM receives frequent requests for help from individual researchers nationally and internationally who are planning research projects for dissertation or publication purposes. Such requests are often made in the expectation of free service from DABATEM. Please note that consultancy services for individual researchers are NOT provided for free, because Professor Başoğlu is very busy and such requests in aggregate cost him considerable amount of time. Like all income generated from consultancy services and training programs, these fees are used to support DABATEM’s research program.

Individuals planning on requesting consultancy from DABATEM are advised to provide a brief synopsis of their research ideas / projects and detail the nature and extent of help they need. Needs often vary from one-off assessment or guidance on a research idea or project in planning to regular supervisory input throughout the various phases of a project, including guidance in data analysis, manuscript preparation, and publication. It is important to note that DABATEM does not get involved in the execution of the work itself; it only provides guidance and commentary on various aspects of research projects. As the fees charged depend on the nature and extent of consultancy and the time input of the staff, this information is essential for costing out a particular service.
