No two studies are the same, so there is no “right” way to start or carry out your study. The Guild does not try to dictate how one-name studies are carried out, so what appears here is guidance based on best practice from a wide range of studies. The approach adopted by the one-namer will vary from study to study depending on the individual undertaking the one-name study and on the size of their study.
That said, the Guild does believe that the well-run one-name study will cover – possibly at various times – all of the “seven pillars of wisdom” listed below:
- Data collection
- Publicising the study
- Responding to enquiries
- Publication of results
- Preserving the study
