There is one mentioned here:

I'd encourage you to contribute to the research wiki page if you find
any new/old research.

The debian-publicity folks can help with publicising any new research
that comes up.

It might be interesting to link to these existing studies from
debian-history or debian-timeline, you might like to submit patches.

Personally I feel that research without feedback to Debian is
suboptimal, we should be able to learn from studies of Debian and
change in positive ways as a result.
