I would also consider "results" oriented bonuses (whether agreed upon
or impromptu.) Said researcher provides X amount of material which
is remunerated with Y. She spends a modicum of time on a quality-
oriented research that brings a positive result. Reward her generously
for this, because:

a) You got what you really wanted
b) It's good kharma
c) You want to reward the researcher for doing that extra work
d) You want the researcher's goals to be in line with your own (quality,
results-oriented research).

I would also discuss these matters with the researcher *in detail*.
Explain what your goals are and what is important to you. Explain
why you are doing this.
