For questions asking whether a particular topic or work is appropriate and on-topic on this website.

The scope of a site determines what the site is about.

The tag is to be used for discussions relating to the scope of Literature SE. So, questions about the following issues should use this tag:

  • whether a certain question is on-topic, or how a question can be modified/improved to make it on-topic,
  • whether an entire topic is (or should be) on/off-topic,
  • whether a tag falls within the scope of the site (see also: ).

Since such questions are usually meant to elicit discussion within the community, the tag is usually the most appropriate among the four mandatory tags for questions tagged .
