Yesterday I ran into this question which was asking for suggestions on which institution to choose for psychoanalytic training, and I have the impression that about a month ago I saw a similar question, although this was for an institution providing a cognitive scientific graduate course. I couldn't find the latter question for some reason but don't take my word on its existence in this site. I may have found it elsewhere.

Nevertheless, my question is if this kind of questions are welcome here. I can imagine that such questions may fall under the category of subjective and that a suggestion from a user may stem from a commercial rather than a scientific interest. However, I am wondering if a discussion on certain features of institutions like the courses taken or research opportunities that would be most suitable for a person with certain research interests, would be useful to some extent.

  • Judging from the close and down votes, I think our community does not feel it belongs here. I already asked the Academia mods whether they are interested in the question. However, it is good you raise this topic, I don't have time to go through related meta questions here now, but you might be the first to address this issue. – Steven Jeuris Oct 5 '14 at 2:08
  • Academia does not want it. – Steven Jeuris Oct 5 '14 at 4:30
  • @StevenJeuris Academia doesn't want this'n, or doesn't want such questions in general? (I had the same question about the same question!) – Krysta Oct 6 '14 at 13:29
  • @Krysta, they don't want too specific questions like this. They are too personalized. – Steven Jeuris Oct 7 '14 at 4:04
  • Gottit, good to know. – Krysta Oct 7 '14 at 12:24
