They said in order to receive funding for this (i.e., the research, writing and recording of the content) I'll have to include a figure of what is a "reasonable" hourly rate for someone performing this type of research. I was wondering if any of you knew of a resource I could cite to justify my asking for X amount of money per hour to perform this type of work?
