    TITLE: Bad statistics: What can journals do?

    SPEAKER: Dr Tom Hardwicke, University of Melbourne

    TIME: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm (AEST), Wednesday 8th February 2023

    VENUE: Online (Zoom details will be sent with registration)

    ABSTRACT: Misuse, misreporting, and misinterpretation of statistical methods ('bad statistics’) can undermine the validity of scientific claims. Academic journals may try to tackle bad statistics by offering statistical guidance to authors or recruiting specialised statistical reviewers. I will describe the results of two meta-research studies which described how often top-ranked journals adopt these countermeasures. I hope these studies will inform a discussion about what journals can/should do to combat bad statistics.

    SPEAKER'S BIO: Tom Hardwicke is a Research Fellow at the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences at The University of Melbourne. He received his PhD in Experimental Psychology from University College London in 2016 and subsequently completed post-doctoral fellowships at The Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford University (METRICS), The QUEST Center for Responsible Research at Charité Berlin, and the Department of Psychology at The University of Amsterdam. Tom works on a variety of meta-research (‘research-on-research’) projects related to transparency, bias, peer review, and reproducibility.
