This desk is intended to be a 'portal' to various kinds of research on Wikiversity and other projects..


How to answer a question[edit]

Do:

  • Cite existing research and literature, many 'research' questions have been asked

many times before.

  • Suggest repeatable experimental tactics to support claims.
  • Be prepared to have your contributions critiqued mercilessly.
  • Quote the full experiment. ( Context is important)

DO NOT.

  • Promote 'fringe' theories. Strong claims need even stronger evidence.
  • Plagarise. Academic fraud is a serious matter.
  • Rely on others to spot the 'missing' term.
  • Self-Publish your own results here.
  • Expect your paper to be written for you !
