For questions asking for a published journal to be included as reference in your answer. Please avoid answering questions tagged [reference-request] without referencing a published journal.

This tag should only be used when answers need sources to back up the information within them.

Only use this tag when your question absolutely needs it. Questions about the proven effects of language learning or any part of it (methods, techniques, etc,) should be the ones using this tag. This applies to questions that require factual answers that might come from studies or other trusted/proven sources. Opinionated questions, resource-request questions, and questions without the need of studies that back up studies should avoid using this tag.

See Resources for Researching Language Learning Questions on the meta site for help on how to answer questions with this tag.
