Is this sentence grammatically correct? e.g for a journal paper's title:

Unemployment affects stress, what about the reverse?

    I'm sure that it's fine as two sentences (Unemployment affects stress. What about the reverse?). I also think that it's fine in informal speech (Unemployment affects stress - what about the reverse?). I'm inclined to believe that, with some punctuation tricks, it might be fine as a title (Unemployment Affects Stress – What about the Reverse?). Jan 25, 2014 at 14:22
  • @DamkerngT. thanks, your comment is really a good ANSWER. It would be better if you have posted it as one.

  • If you add since it would be fine: Since Unemployment affects stress, what about the reverse ?

  • A journal title might be more along the lines of: Investigating the Correlation Between Unemployment and Stress as Both Cause and Effect. or something like that.

I'm sure that it's fine as two sentences,

Unemployment affects stress. What about the reverse?

I also think that it's fine in informal speech (I often see similar sentences in transcriptions),

Unemployment affects stress – what about the reverse?

I'm inclined to believe that, with some punctuation tricks, it might be fine as a title (I would use it myself),

Unemployment Affects Stress – What about the Reverse?

I think the topic has its own format(structure).

it can be used in this way ."unemployment affects Stress ?"

Grammatically may be true or false, but here mentioned for a journal title .

But grammatically I think It is better to use "What about the reverse of it ".
