Are there any publications that were motivated by a CrossValidated post? Was the site acknowledged? Is there a badge for that?

    $\begingroup$ Not sure about methodological research. Another point is that CV is quite young for any paper to have made it through a publication cycle. Also, for the most part, the questions here are usually not research level, even in applications, as far as I can tell. There are some questions and answers here or there that have likely gotten someone over a hump (or at least out of a trough) on some of their work. $\endgroup$ – cardinal Nov 3 '11 at 23:36

    $\begingroup$ I think it would be good if someone could write up a paper describing the site, which people who want to acknowledge/thank the site could then reference. Biostar has done something like this. $\endgroup$ – Faheem Mitha Nov 6 '11 at 15:59

I thought that the answers to the question "For which distributions are the parameterizations in BUGS and R different?" would be of general interest to the R community so I wrote it up (in collaboration with the answer's author). The article "Translating Probability Density Functions: From R to BUGS and Back Again." is methodological, though the research part was limited to compiling references.

The acknowledgements read "This collaboration began on the Cross Validated statistical forum (http.//stats.stackexchange.com/q/5543/1381)."

Hopefully there will be at some point. I am performing an empirical study of Nelder-Mead simplex, gradient descent and grid-search methods for model selection for kernel machines, which was inspired by a question on Cross Validated (which appropriately is also the model selection criterion ;o). No paper yet though.

    $\begingroup$ The paper is currently in review. $\endgroup$ – Dikran Marsupial Jul 18 '13 at 12:04
  • $\begingroup$ Has this paper been published by now? $\endgroup$ – amoeba Oct 22 '15 at 15:47
  • $\begingroup$ No, it was rejected (despite statistically significant result ;o), am still working on the second draft, hopefully it will be a better paper for the revisions. $\endgroup$ – Dikran Marsupial Oct 23 '15 at 8:28

A badge for it would be tricky, as it's not an automatic thing that can be scraped from the site itself.

I don't know of any methods research spawned by CV, but I haven't been here all that long, so someone may come and chime in. I have however used it to sanity check an idea or two that I've had. Though the one time CV did out-and-out answer the question, I had a better source provided.

Almost two years after having asked this question, I actually wrote a paper inspired by CV (still unpublished):

http://arxiv.org/abs/1304.4920

I used the question's url in the body of the text.

    $\begingroup$ John could you correct the name of the site in the title and body of your post here (you're missing a "d") and also in your paper (replace the terminal "s" with a "d")? $\endgroup$ – Glen_b Jul 19 '13 at 2:49
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. I edited this post. Could you be more specific about the changes needed in the paper? $\endgroup$ – JohnRos Jul 20 '13 at 12:37
  • $\begingroup$ In the abstract, fix the name of the site - i.e. the same word as you corrected here. That is, taking the abstract from here: "in the statistics Questions & Answers web site Cross Validates", replace the terminal s with a d. You could just search for 'cross'. $\endgroup$ – Glen_b Jul 21 '13 at 0:01
