QT from Nature podcast:{{”
I mean first of all, I think we do have a big problem with deliberate outright fraud, but that’s a kind of separate thing from what happens much more commonly. I think there’s a much more common, and in some ways much more kind of insidious because it’s so widespread, problem of bias towards finding exciting, statistically significant results in the literature. So, if you look at the scientific literature, a huge proportion of the findings that are published there are positive results, right, way more than we would expect. In one study, it’s something like over 90% or maybe even more that.
