Is improperly used statistics to blame for poor reproducibility?

Postby Joseph Malkevitch » Tue Nov 28, 2017 1:44 pm

Dear Colleagues,

There has been a lot of attention devoted recently to why various studies when repeated don't show the same results of the original study.

One concern is that many use "p-tests" in a way that gives the impression that results are more "iron clad" than is truly the case.

Here are some recent comments on this debate.
