LaTeX is a document markup language and document preparation system for the TeX typesetting program. Note that http://tex.stackexchange.com is specifically dedicated to LaTeX (and TeX) questions.
Even in the tag wiki there is no exact guide to the user which are the on-topic questions about TeX for Academia.
This tag excerpt/wiki may have to be improved in the following areas;
The user is very probable to be mis-understood into which website should s/he ask the question. As in the excerpt does not distinguish the exact questions which are on-topic for Academia. I think that the excerpt should include the following points:
- The user may ask about the use of LaTeX in his academic publications; such as the use of LaTeX in preparing manuscripts for the journals.
- Technical issues should go directly to the LaTeX.SE and are off-topic Academia.
So, the question here is whether there is any need to improve the latex tag and if you are positive with this edit, what should be the improved tag excerpt/wiki look like?
