Reviewers prefer positive findings
Geplaatst op 26 september 2009 - 11:09
VANCOUVER, Canada ó Peer reviewers for biomedical journals preferentially rate manuscripts with positive health outcomes as better, a new study reports.
The findings caused a buzz when presented September 11 at the International Congress on Peer Review and Biomedical Publication. If positive trials are preferentially published, explains Seth Leopold of the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, doctors will get a skewed impression of a therapyís value: ďNovel treatments will appear more effective than they actually are.Ē
"Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them."
