Get out of the file-drawer

April 26, 2012

The PsychFileDrawer site has a post a propos the recent issue on replication in “the Psychologist” (Oh, how, i had to fiddle that one so I wouldn’t have two “the’s” next to one another.  They go through (again) the problem with only publishing positive results, and make a gentle push for their site.  I figure I will help a bit in the nudging.

But, oh, on the issue of null results, and null-hypotheses:  Andy Field (who is becoming my second most favorite statistician) has a rant up about null-hypotheses that is well worth reading.  Echoes what my most favorite statistician Andrew Gelman says about the same thing.
