Researchers can contribute to multiple BOINC projects and each project will yield a different number of credits (RAC).
RES rewards researchers with Magnitude, a value for your RAC relative to the total Team RAC.
Magnitude rewards are split equally among project contributors, even if RAC is not equal.
Put simply, if Project A grants 10 credits for a task and Project B grants 1,000 points for the same task, the Magnitude reward will be similar.
A researcher's Magnitude for each project is calculated using the following formula:
Researcher Magnitude = 86400 * ( Researcher RAC / Team RAC ) / Number of whitelisted projects )
Rewards are distributed every 24 hours, and the RES value per Magnitude reward is adjusted over time.
