These so-called scientists, from virtually every corner of the globe, do not make clear or do not even bother to tell us their sample sizes in from 20% to 80% of Gosselin's sampling of recent articles. Likewise, they do not bother to make clear the exact statistical tests employed in specific experiments in up to 40% of the cases.
As Gosselin states:
"The safe-conducts given by the editorial system to articles that do not disclose exact sample sizes are shocking. Science must be based on the possibility to repeat comparable designs, which obviously encompasses the use of similar numbers of observations."
Gosselin specifies just how ludicrous the shoddy science is by giving examples of obfuscation when it comes to sample sizes:
"Sample sizes given as intervals (e.g. “n=3-18”), inequalities (e.g. “n>3”) or absurdly nebulous sentences (e.g. “n=4, data representative of 3 rats from 2 independent experiments”) are evident obstructions to reproducibility."
It irks the hell out of me that world tax dollars are being squandered on this excrement and that these people have the audacity to march around on "earth day" essentially demanding that their cushy lifestyles remain undisturbed while the rest of us slave away. Perhaps instead of marching around being impressed with themselves for publishing patently incorrect rubbish, these so-called scientist should clean up their acts, or better yet, take Dr Gosselin's courses on statistics.
