We had a question:
The essential features:
- the OP wants to know the name or reference to a study
- the OP knows that the study exists and has some details about the study
- Should there be a tag for this?
- If so, what should the tag be?
We already have a tag called reference-request (full disclosure: we had a tag named reference that had 2 questions that I retagged to the new reference-request tag to bring it into existance) with 2 questions. Had the tag existed when I first asked some of my questions, I would have also tagged them as such, and will probably add the tags next time I edit my questions.
This tag is consistent with the tagging convention on other academic Q&A sites like MO, cstheory.SE, TP.SE, and linguistics.SE (and maybe others).
I would use this tag for:
I wouldn't tag a question as reference request just because you want people to include references for what they state in their answers (since that should always be implicitly expected).
I propose the tag identify-this-research. It's a bit broader than just studies so it can be applied in more scenarios.
Using this tag would allow us to greatly reduce the length of the title.
What was the the study called that was on commitment and follow-through and involved college students attending a follow-up event?
... after the tag is applied I would change the title to:
Study on commitment and follow-through involving college students attending a follow-up event.
I know it ain't a question, but turning it into a question seems redundant to me, easier solved by applying identify-this-research.
