I recently completed a Masters of Education degree.  I did research involving using video games in public education (specifically MMO games like WoW).  I posted a PDF of my thesis and went on about my life.  It is a research document after all I didn't figure many people would want to read it.  Well apparently the PDF I posted had ~300 views and someone published it without my consent or knowledge making it so you had to pay and Download the PDF.  I want to keep my work free and available to all and am not looking to make any money just get the info out there which apparently quite a few people have taken interested in. 

 

I contacted the site that was charging people to download my work and they removed the link, since then a letter in the mail has arrived asking about publishing my work. As mentioned before I don't want to sell it I am looking to stick to digital and free.  I re-uploaded it a few days ago http://www.slideshar...-final-37431591 so anyone with the link can view my work in full.  However it will get very little recognition here (though it already had 40 views apparently in the last few days alone).  In order to get it more accessible to other researchers I contacted an educational website and they would like to digitally publish my work (free for all) but asked me to...

 


Please send me a cover for your thesis - something that you think will attract people to it on our website. I will keep everything the same, just add the colorful cover to the document so it stands out.

 

The website publishing my work also wants me to write an article and host a 5 minute talk about the work.  All a bit overwhelming but I figured if a lot of people are actually going to see this I should probably look into trying to get some sort of decent graphic for my cover.

 

I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in helping me design a cover for my document that is somewhat related/relevent to the topic?  I would be happy to add a thank you giving recognition to you and your cover work in the document.

 

Also to a mod sorry if this is the wrong place I looked for a more appropriate place to make this thread but wasn't sure.  Also yes, I know there are other sites out there I could post that might be better for this sort of thing but I have been a member of this community for a long time and wanted to post asking here first.

I could move this to the Grafix Exchange sub forum where it may get a little more attention but I believe most people who are active in that section would expect payment.

Thanks for the response I will probably post somewhere else to try and find help.  I don't have money to pay for something, lol not even sure how to pay the bills I do have, substitutde teaching doesn't pay too well.... and nothing over the summer on foodstamps just to get by.
