What We Are

The Research Questions Marketplace by Effective Thesis is a platform designed to connect ambitious student-researchers with the most pressing and impactful research questions of our time. We are dedicated to improving the landscape of academic research by focusing on what matters most: identifying the questions that will shape our future. To do so, we ask professors and research organizations to submit and peer review the questions that they consider the most important and that pre-PhD students can make progress on.

Our Purpose

In a world teeming with unanswered questions and untapped potential, we aim to bridge the gap between academic curiosity and real-world impact. Our mission is to:

  • Guide students, academics, and researchers to discover meaningful research questions that align with their skills, interests, and the global need for progress.
  • Foster collaboration among scholars across disciplines and cause areas to tackle complex challenges with interdisciplinary approaches.
  • Amplify the impact of research by focusing efforts on areas that promise significant, positive change for society and the planet.

Join Our Cause

We are actively seeking committed individuals to help us expand our database across more cause areas and disciplines. Whether you are a student in search of a meaningful thesis topic, a researcher looking to guide the next generation, or an academic professional eager to share your expertise, your contribution can make a significant difference to the hundreds of thousands of visitors to our website.
