Project description

There is no set format for this section, and it can be as long or as short as you want. What do you want to do, why do you want to do it, and how will it happen? What kinds of people would be good at working on this? How will you know if you've succeeded? What similar things have been done before? You can supplement (and should) your application with external links to helpful resources, but a reader should be able to understand the project you are proposing even if they only read the abstract you've written here.

From the Free Culture group: One of the worst things about an undergraduate's career is that the papers he or she writes rarely get seen by anyone beyond a grad student. If you're proud of a paper, why not share it? and if you're working on a paper, and want feedback, why not put it online for public comment? We want to build a paper repository and exchange that will do just that, which will allow readers to add commentary and ratings, and allow casual visitors to quickly find interesting, new, and useful papers written by their peers.
