Vals positieven: Geen gebrek aan integriteit, maar een teveel aan flexibiliteit.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Hornikx and Batenburg discuss the important problem of false positives in the literature. One of the causes for false positives they give is a faulty incentive system that stimulates unethical behavior. In this reply I argue that false positives are mainly caused by human error, misunderstanding of statistics, and underpowered studies. I suggest a small adaptation to the solutions that were offered.
