We were very excited that our piece ‘A hypothesis is a liability’ – on the hidden cost to having a hypothesis when analyzing a dataset – received attention in the media:
It was listed as one of the 100 most discussed articles across 20 disciplines. Altmetric tracked 87.7 million mentions of 3.4 million works in 2020.
Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf also wrote a news piece about it.
Genome Biology published a response called “The data-hypothesis relationship“
Teppo Felin, Jan Koenderink, Joachim I. Krueger, Denis Noble & George F.R. Ellis
Genome Biology volume 22, Article number: 57 (2021)
We, in turn, responded to their response “The data-hypothesis conversation” Genome Biology volume 22, Article number: 58 (2021)
And then they were given the chance to response to our response to their response to our piece (!): “Data bias” Genome Biology volume 22, Article number: 59 (2021)
