Comment only in medicine (Score 5, Interesting) 429

In reading a couple of these types of articles recently I've noticed that the articles always talk about this being a problem across all journals, but only seem to mention a couple of different disciplines - medicine usually chief among them. Has anyone heard/read anything naming a hard science (e.g. chemistry or physics) as full of bad stats? My hunch is that this happens most often in medicine because you have the combination of controlling for a lot of variables as well as inadequate mathematics training.

Comment Timing (Score 1) 341

I think the timing of this announcement is really the icing on the cake - just long enough after the holidays for everyone to have opened their gifts and can't return them anymore. I wonder how many people would have returned Madden 10 back to stores knowing that the online play was likely only to last until 04/2011. And how many people who were feeling the economic crunch got used copies of Madden 09?
