Pesky Publication bias, and finding a place for nulls and replication.
In the commentary “Negativland – a home for all findings in psychology” over at BMC psychology, Keith Laws goes through the state of current psychology with publication bias, novelty fixes, and ever swelling, ever hidden file-drawers. At least that is the sense one gets. It is a good read, though slightly dystopian, but with a glimmer of hope towards the end. Pushing the journal. They will publish well thought out experiments, never mind where the p-values end. (At least that is what I gather).
Can be nice to pair this with a to be published paper from Greg Francis where he goes through the methods for checking publication bias. (It is in pdf, for anybody who gets annoyed and computer-hung-up by that).
