Dynamo “Guidelines For Academic Requesters” On Amazon
Mechanical Turk Released
November 21, 2014
Mars, TX – Dynamo is excited to announce the completion of the “Guidelines for Academic
Requesters” document which is now available on Wiki.
Dynamo intends that the production of these guidelines will give more clarity as to why some
requesters do not receive the quality results and data that they are expecting. The guidelines are
designed to build a harmonious, beneficial working relationship between requesters and workers.
It is envisaged that by communicating these guidelines to both groups, a higher standard of data
will be captured. These higher standards will benefit everyone.
These guidelines have been also been produced with an aim to educate requesters about the
workers, and to help workers reach out to those requesters who do not treat workers fairly.
Full details of the guidelines can be found at here.
Dynamo was created in 2014 by a collective of Amazon Mechanical Turk workers and requesters
who had concern about the pay and treatment of workers who give their time to answer academic
Dynamo hopes that by educating requesters how best to work with Amazon Mechanical Turk
workers, both parties will achieve greater results and stronger relations.
