selective reporting

A Quote by Dean Radin on selective reporting, studies, and esp

Some have proposed that the practice of selective reporting, or publishing only successful studies and filing away the unsuccessful ones, can explain the overall results of these tests.  But analyses show that of the 188 experiments described in Rhine’s 1940 book, Extrasensory Perception after Sixty Years, the combined results are so far from chance that it would take 428,000 unreported studies averaging a chance effect to eliminate the results of the known 188 experiments.  Given that it took 60 years to produce those 188 experiments, or about 3 studies per year, at that rate the missing studies would have taken 137,000 years to produce.
