The Stack Overflow podcast is back! Listen to an interview with our new CEO.

Queries related to various software used in academia. Questions shall not address highly technical aspects of the software but shall address features/issues highly relevant to academia. For questions concerning computer code written or used in the context of a research project or other academic endeavour (including questions on licensing, ownership, sharing, distribution, and formatting of academic source code), use the `code` tag instead.

A researcher or a graduate student need to use a lot of software to make their life easier and make them more productive. The tag address queries related to such software, but limited to academic aspects of it.

On the other hand, questions concerning computer code written or used in the context of a research project or other academic endeavour (including questions on licensing, ownership, sharing, distribution, and formatting of academic source code) should be asked under the tag.

Finally, highly technical aspects shall be posted to relevant specific SE or SO.
