Bioacoustics, at its core, is a highly multidisciplinary field and many questions relevant to researchers in our field could readily be asked on any number of other SE sites, including (but not limited to) Biology, Signal Processing, Electrical Engineering, Hardware, Open Science, Physics, Cross Validated, etc. While there has been interest & discussion in creating a way to cross-post (see post), Cross-posting is not acceptable behavior (see post).
Cross-discipline questions that are related to (or applied to) the field of Bioacoustics have been found to be ‘important’ to our community, as expressed by question upvotes (as of this writing, this Q is the 4th highest upvotes, showing importance to our community, but could arguably be asked on other sites). Other similar types of questions have been closed (or are in discussion of being closed) for not being directly related to Bioacoustics. Our community needs to identify guidelines so that we can ask cross-discipline questions that are relevant to the bioacoustics community while ensuring that this site is expressly useful for questions related to bioacoustics.
How should I (we) ask multidisciplinary questions here on Bioacoustics Stack Exchange so that they can be considered ‘on topic’??
