The scientific progress tag is for posts about:

  • The potential risks and benefits of progress in different areas
  • Strategies for changing the rate of progress in different areas
  • General information related to progress (e.g. factors that tend to encourage it)
  • Specific examples of progress (e.g. a major advance in an important scientific field)

For posts about more specific aspects of the scientific ecosystem and how that can be improved, use the meta-science tag.
