We already have this general question on How to promote the site and reach out to industry experts?.
However, the question is fairly general. Most of the experts in psychology and cognitive science are academics. And there would also be an large group of students completing a PhD or masters thesis who would have substantial expertise, and plenty of interesting questions. Presumably this academic context creates particular opportunities and challenges as compared to many other stack exchange sites focused on programming.
- So, what specific promotional strategies can we use to attract academics and graduate students?
- Can we learn anything from existing stack exchange sites in their attempts to engage with the academic community?
