Appropedia:Original research

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This is a proposed Appropedia policy. You can edit it, or discuss it on the talk page or at the Appropedia policy discussion page.
For now, this should be considered an essay by one or more Appropedians, and not as a policy or guideline.

Appropedia, unlike Wikipedia, encourages the posting of original research.

Scientific rigor is encouraged.

However, users are advised that articles are generally not peer reviewed unless tagged with the appropriate template notice.[1]

However, Appropedia has been shown to be a useful platform for open source research in sustainability. [2]
