Questions that are about research in mathematics, or about the job of a research mathematician, without being mathematical problems or statements in the strictest sense. In other words, questions that can be answered without making computations or applying theorems and axioms.

More elementary questions in mathematics are better asked on http://math.stackexchange.com/, and questions about teaching mathematics are welcome on http://matheducators.stackexchange.com/.
