Despite the broad array of tools available, we in the biomedical sciences have become limited in the way we do statistical inference, with null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) the dominant approach and small P values the measure of our worth. However, there are a number of important limitations to NHST, at least as it is often implemented in practice, and these limitations are beginning to provoke a response across the literature in our field. One journal has even banned the use of NHST entirely. This editorial describes some of these limitations, and offers recommendations for better reporting of statistical analyses that we would encourage our authors to adopt.
