I'm taking a few approaches to this myself, and I had some questions about the best way to do some things. (Tagging "EA Librarian" on this in particular)

  1. I'm considering (discussion here) existing lists, reviews, and syllabi such as:
  • GPI research agenda (includes many posed questions)
  • Open Philanthropy "questions that might affect our grantmaking"
  • Pablo Stafforini's syllabi, David Rhys-Bernard's syllabus

What 'lists' in this category am I missing?

  1. What are the best tools for finding:
  • the most prominent EA-linked authors in economics, social science, and policy impact
  • the papers that a relevant author cites the most? (E.g., 'which papers does David Roodman cite most often'?)
  • the papers that a relevant organization cites the most?
  1. Where and how (perhaps outside EA circles) should I promote this crowdsourcing and this bounty? E.g., which particular academic boards/societies/groups should we share this with? What other incentives should we offer?

  2. How could GPT3 or Elicit be used to help in this, if at all?

I've recently discovered Connected Papers, and while it doesn't address all of your questions, it might be helpful for finding EA-linked authors and papers. Here is an example of the web of connections for What Should We Agree on about the Repugnant Conclusion.
