Reviewer Bias for Statistically Significant Results: A Reexamination.
Fagley, N. S.; McKinney, I. Jean
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v30 n2 p298-300 Apr 1983
Reexamines the article by Atkinson, Furlong, and Wampold (1982) and questions their conclusion that reviewers were biased toward statistically significant results. A statistical power analysis shows the power of their bogus study was low. Low power in a study reporting nonsignificant findings is a valid reason for recommending not to publish. (Author/JAC)
