I threw together a blog post about a seemingly p-hacked breastfeeding study in the news today. Is technical disclosure in the journal article enough when you are issuing press releases without it?

I am very interested in press release policies in general, for the reason your mentioning and for others (I find that about half the press releases I read don't even cite the paper being discussed (!) so there is a substantial obstacle to overcome just to find the details of the study). If anyone knows of discussions on this topic, I'd be grateful if you'd help me find them.

"Specifically, Popper makes clear that (1) scientists should replicate their own experiments; (2) scientists should be able to instruct other experts how to reproduce their experiments and get the same results; and (3) establishing the reproducibility of experiments (“direct replication” in the parlance of our times) is a necessary precursor for all the other things you do to construct and test theories."

Failed experimental procedures do not necessarily fail toward the null - why validation of methods needs to come before substantive conclusions.

I know one person in linguistics who throws out data points that "don't fit the expected pattern". Hopefully this is the only one.

New blog post: An open review of Many Labs 3. The upshot: Not much replicated (perhaps less than it appears). No interactions replicated, almost certainly due to power issues. One original study missed its hypothesized effect, also probably due to power. Emblematic problems with a "conceptual replication." And another blow to the hidden moderator defense.

Statistics as math vs. statistics as tools. My new blog post about how different frames might affect how statisticians and scientists communicate and miscommunicate, and some ideas of what to do about it.
How do you think about statistical methods in science? Are statistics a matter of math and logic? Or are they a useful tool? Over time, I have noticed that these seem to be two implicit frames for ...

The selection-distortion effect. A unified explanation for surprisingly low observed correlations between intelligence and motivation, research and teaching, and burgers and fries.
A little while back I ran across an idea buried in an old paper of Robyn Dawes that really opened my eyes. It was one of those things that seemed really simple and straightforward once I saw it. Bu...
