What is a one-name study?

When I registered my paternal surname HUNTER with the Guild of One-Name Studies in 2015 these were the study principles:

  1. That the study will be global in scope
  2. That it will include research within countries where the name is relatively significant and where sources of genealogical data are readily available
  3. That it will research and store data available in core genealogical datasets and transcriptions
  4. That it stores and may research other date where the surname is mentioned
  5. That the member will maintain an accurate description of the scope and progress of the study
