Re­search methods

TagLast edit: 8 May 2021 16:37 UTC by EA Wiki assistant

Use the research methods tag for posts about how to conduct better research.

The tag can also be used for posts that present their research in such an exemplary way that a reader could learn about effective research methods simply by reading them.

For posts about improving research methods done in science, use the meta-science tag.
