Is there a physics-, chemistry-, biology- or maybe mathematics-oriented Stack Exchange site?


There is a full list of science sites on Stack Exchange

Here are some examples from the overview of Stack Exchange sites:

There may be others as well. Check out the full list of sites for an up-to-date list.

  • Still, all these are sites for a particular domain within science, none of them deals with the fundamentals of the scientific process. – Alex - Stop it SE Nov 8 '16 at 17:24

To update the existing answers for SE 2.0, Stacks in scientific fields now include:

These along with some other Stacks are listed in the Stack Exchange Directory under science and new sites are being proposed in the Area 51 science category.


Proposals at Area 51 for SE-2.0 sites:

Your support in bringing them into existence is appreciated!

  • @AlE. are you sure about that Astronomy one? Though this does point out the problem with external resources. – user213963 Feb 2 '16 at 20:53
  • @MichaelT: Follow the link to Area 51. Right in the header at the top it says "The Astronomy site didn't have enough activity during the beta. It has been closed, and its content has been merged into Physics. You can download the data dump of all questions here." – ale Feb 2 '16 at 20:55

    @AlE. and that proposal was merged. And then it was restarted. And it seems to be doing reasonably now. And this information is perpetually getting out of date. – user213963 Feb 2 '16 at 20:55
  • This particular answer seems to have been superceded by others, so it should probably be removed. – ale Feb 2 '16 at 20:57
  • @AlE. That's never been the correct procedure - either answers are updated (which is ultimately the reason why everyone with sufficient reputation can do it, especially if the OP moved on) or the superseding answers (should) get more upvotes. Thanks for your updating this answer btw :) – Tobias Kienzler Feb 3 '16 at 6:23
  • @AlE. I agree with your close-vote though, there is no reason to maintain this question now that SE has an automatically up-to-date list – Tobias Kienzler Feb 3 '16 at 6:25

If you want to know something about scientific processes like teaching, paper writing / reviewing, ethics, ... then you might want to have a look at academia.stackexchange.com

  • Although that is a site about the process of learning and reporting science, not the scientific process itself. – Alex - Stop it SE Nov 8 '16 at 17:22
