Research Assistant for Freelance Writing Database

I am looking for someone with very good search engine research skills. Your job will be to help update listings in a database.

The database is a list of publishers that pay freelance writers, and includes payment rates and contact information for the publisher, as well as submission guidelines, if available.

Your job will be to fact check each listing, to make sure it is still accurate and up to date. This includes making sure the publisher is still actively publishing, checking the pay information, contact information, and links, as well as similar information.

The hope is to start with 4 to 6 hours for the first week and then move forward from there. Our primary researcher is going on maternity leave in November, and you will probably have expanded hours and more responsibility for two or three months, until they return to work.

Here's an example listing you'll be working on:

Woodworker's Journal is a bi-monthly print and digital magazine for and about woodworking and woodworkers. They “accept submissions for projects; how-to’s and techniques; tool reviews; and features.” For project articles and tool reviews, payment starts at $225 per page. For how-to’s and techniques articles that are addressed to their “tricks of the trade” department, payment ranges from $50 to $150. For feature articles (1,000 words), payment starts at $150. For details, read their writer’s guidelines.

(Note, the links aren't included.)

You must have the ability to write clear, grammatically correct English. ESL is fine.
