Evolution of Bad Science

Smaldino and McElreath McElreath examine the dynamics of the quality of scientific literature. This is a very important, sobering (and timely) paper. This paper provides a clear (literate) exposition. The definitions, the models used and the parameter distributions provide a compelling case that high output is an important ( subconscious and unintentional driver of under-powered studies and increasing rate of false discovery.

The graphics from the paper follow. It is highly recommended that the full paper be carefully read.
