Evidence of 'cherry picking' in studies aiming to identify publication bias




Off Publication Bias Critiques by Francis
(2012a, 2012b, 2012c, 2012d, 2012e, in press)

Author: Uri Simonsohn

Abstract

Francis (2012a, 2012b, 2012c, 2012d, 2012e, in press) attacks individual papers through critiques that apply faulty logic to analyses ironically biased by cherry picking. However well intentioned, the critiques are probably counterproductive to their stipulated goal and certainly unfair to the targeted authors.

Would be good to gather the main papers in this debate for a journal session.
