Comment in the sticky if you want to mod & grow the sub.
If you are new to this sub please take some time to review the info in the sidebar & wiki before contributing. This area of research is growing rapidly. If you do not follow the research closely, please refrain from making authoritative statements.
Please use the stickied thread to give feedback/suggestions about the sub & its rules. Meta discussion elsewhere will be removed.
This is a science/evidence based sub. Usage of citations to support your claims is highly encouraged and may become mandatory.
Submitters of studies are encouraged to include some comment explaining why they feel the paper is significant.
Be civil & constructive. Engage in good faith. Trolls/agitators will be banned. Address the arguments, not the person. The subject of your sentence should be "the evidence" or "this source" or some other noun directly related to the topic of conversation. "You" statements are suspect.
Memes as top level submissions are not appropriate, but can be posted in the comments. Other low-scientific-quality content may be removed as well. You need to have a good reason for submitting old studies.
Excessive rule breaking may result in a ban.
