I would like to implement the following tag structure as already suggested and reasoned in this answer. An arrow means that the respective tags are merged and synonymised, with the right tag being the master.
- research → research-process
- research-publication, research-paper → publications
- research-workplace → workplace
- research-supervision → supervision
This is not a big change. There will be a few synonyms that link to existing tags and research will be renamed. Questions that are mistagged with research will continue to be mistagged. There will be no merges of existing tags or burninations.
Note that in contrast to what I proposed in the linked question, I would not remove research in hope that the synonymisation would suffice to stop people from choosing this tag (in the tag-selection process, they would have to actively click on research-process).
I am mainly bringing this up again, because the old post was, well, old and did not receive much feedback. If you have any objections or better suggestions, please voice them here and now. Otherwise, I will implement this in a week or so.
