The Covid-19 pandemic has far-reaching implications for researchers. For example, many researchers cannot access their labs anymore and are hit by budget-cuts from their institutions. Luckily, there are a range of ways how high-quality research can be conducted without funding and face-to-face interactions. In the present paper, I discuss nine such possibilities, including meta-analyses, secondary data analyses, web-scrapping, scientometrics, or sharing one’s expert knowledge (e.g., writing tutorials). Most of these possibilities can be done from home, as they require only access to a computer, the internet, and time; but no state-of-the art equipment or funding to pay for participants. Thus, they are particularly relevant for researchers with limited financial resources beyond pandemics and quarantines.
