As for research? The last bit I read about taping was the paper that nearly every physio swollowed hook line and sinker. It went on about lasting 20 minutes.
In practice, when one can strap a knee or elbow for instance, and prevent it from extending fully for a few days, well that 20 minute theory was tripe.
