Remember when I wrote to the National Academy of Science (NAS) in September pointing out mistaken definitions of P-values in their document on Reproducibility and Replicability in Science? (see my 9/30/19 post). I’d given up on their taking any action, but yesterday I received a letter from the NAS Senior Program officer:
Dear Dr. Mayo,
I am writing to let you know that the Reproducibility and Replicability in Science report has been updated in response to the issues that you have raised.
Two footnotes, on pages
3135 and 221, highlight the changes. The updated report is available from the following link: NEW 2020 NAS DOC
Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me and to Dr. Fineberg and letting us know about your concerns.
With kind regards and wishes of a happy 2020,
Jennifer Heimberg, Ph.D.
Senior Program Officer
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
