Fantasy Pitching V follows in the footsteps of four earlier fantasy pitching exercises: Faff, Ali, et al. (2016); Faff, Wallin et al. (2016); Faff, Carrick, et al (2017) & Faff, Baladi, et al (2017). Like all prior versions, the current paper challenges teams of novice researchers to use the framework of Faff’s (2015, 2017a) pitching research template, in a time constrained setting, to pitch fictitious research projects. The contexts reported in the current paper come four different settings: (a) a PhD course run at the University of Economics, Prague (April 2017); (b) UQ Summer Research Scholar cohort, 2017-18; (c) AFDEN and (d) FIRN PhD courses on the 'Research Process'. The fantasy application of the 'pitching' approach provides a low stress environment for appreciating and exploring the underlying philosophy of the pitching research tool. Herein, we share the fruits of thirteen fantasy teams relating to: (a) Handshaking habits I; (b) Handshaking habits II; (c) Warm ice-cream; (d) Misery vs. happiness; (e) income equality; (f) Air pollution; (g) Divorce; (h) Doraemon; (i) Toupee power; (j) Lego; (k) Spiders; (l) Fashion; and (m) Crime.
