I feel like the tag is a little overused right now. Right now, out of 15 questions, one has an accepted answer and 8 have an answer at all. This makes an overall answer rate of more or less a half.

The tag infotag info says the following:

Please avoid answering questions tagged [reference-request] without referencing a published journal.

In most cases, probably, before asking a question, previous research has been done. This means, if there was a good reference, it would have probably been found during the research.

Is this how it is intended to work?

I would address this problem, by:

Accepting personal experience as a reference

Writing a blog article out of my personal experience and linking it as a reference, won't improve the quality of my answer. Still, it would meet the requirement of linking a reference. So if a question is answerable by personal experience as a reference, it could be acceptable to answer with it.

By using the tag, OP could express his wish to have a reference. Logically argumented answers without a reference would still be acceptable in case it helped to solve the issue.
