Investigated whether two editorial policies concerning the reporting of statistical information would affect readers' perceptions of research results in 4 experiments involving 194, 89, 78, and 69 undergraduate and graduate students. Results show that undergraduates were more likely to perceive research to be important when effect sizes were reported, but graduate students were less affected by effect size and "what if" information.
