      • Point of View: Data science for the scientific life cycle

        https://elifesciences.org/articles/4...19-elife-alert

        A key tenet of the scientific method is that we learn from previous work. In principle we observe something about the world and generate a hypothesis. We then design an experiment to test that hypothesis, set up the experiment, collect the data and analyse the results. And when we report our results and interpretation of them in a paper, we make it possible for other researchers to build on our work.

        In practice, there are impediments at every step of the process. In particular, our work depends on published research that often does not contain all the information required to reproduce what was reported. There are too many possible experimental parameters to test under our time and budget constraints, so we make decisions that affect how we interpret the outcomes of our experiments. As researchers, we should not be complacent about these obstacles: rather, we should always look towards new technologies, such as data science, to help us improve the quality and efficiency of scientific research.

                  • How to Review an Article

                    https://thesciencept.com/how-to-review-an-article/

                    One of the most common questions I get is along the lines of, “How should I go about reading and critically analyzing a research article?” Many clinicians and students are starting a journal club and want to make sure that they don’t fall victim to the trappings of “bad science”. After replying to enough of these, I have decided to just put it into a blog post. If you just want to know how to stay current with the literature, that is a separate post that I wrote several years ago.

                    Why do we need to critically analyze research papers? Why can’t we just take articles at their face value? Well, a study by the Center for Open Science that attempted to replicate 100 previously conducted studies showed that we had a problem. 97% of the original studies showed an effect. When the same studies were run a second time EXACTLY as before, only 36% showed an effect – and those remaining effects were much smaller than originally described. Why is this? We’ll get to that. For now just know that the evidence you thought you had supporting what you do may not be “real”.

                  • Statisticians want to abandon science’s standard measure of ‘significance’

                    https://www.sciencenews.org/article/...test_Headlines

                    The P value itself is only a statistical test, and no one is trying to get rid of it. Instead, the signers of the Nature manifesto are against the idea of statistical significance, where P is less than or equal to 0.05. That limit gives a false sense of certainty about results, McShane says. “Statistics is often wrongly perceived to be a way to get rid of uncertainty,” he says. But it’s really “about quantifying the degree of uncertainty.”

                    Embracing that uncertainty would change how science is communicated to the public. People expect clear yes-or-no answers from science, or want to know that an experiment “found” something, though that’s never truly the case, Haaf says. There is always uncertainty in scientific results. But right now scientists and nonscientists alike have bought into the false certainty of statistical significance.

                    Those teaching or communicating science — and those learning and listening — would need to understand and embrace uncertainty right along with the scientific community. “I’m not sure how we do that,” says Haaf. “What people want from science is answers, and sometimes the way we report data should show [that] we don’t have a clear answer; it’s messier than you think.”
