Statistical Mistakes

The statistical reviewer's handbook

The webmaster

jrakiyThank you for visiting this website. My name is Jonas Ranstam. I am a medical statistician, and I have a long experience from reviewing manuscripts submitted for publication to scientific medical journals, see my personal homepage for more detailed information.

Medical research is usually based on empirical observations and statistical reasoning for performing valid estimations of treatment effects, risks of complications and side effects, etc. and for arriving at scientifically sound conclusions from research studies.

It is generally considered important that manuscripts presenting such findings are reviewed by a statistical expert before an editorial decision regarding the manuscript’s publication is made.  I maintain this website to support statistical reviewers with information facilitating the reviewing. I use the website as a personal handbook for my own reviewing. I am glad if others also find it useful.
