Let's say that for a time I have been researching a specific question or topic on my own and I've come up with an answer. The answer seems to me to be complete and satisfactory to my needs. At this point I just could go ahead and use the answer or file it away or whatever, but I feel that this result could be of benefit to the community.
Now, many other knowledge-sharing communities have article sections where users can submit this kind of result so that other users can benefit from the research even if it's not an open discussion. The Stack Exchange model has no explicit function to submit articles.
My question is, if I have such an article from my own research that I want to share, is it good conduct to form a question and a solution from the article and post them both together?
I think this would expose the result to the benefit of the community without violating the question-answer structure. Also, by not accepting my own answer right away I could leave the question open for others who maybe have researched similar topics to contribute.
