There’s going to be a symposium on Evidence in Action at the annual Philosophy of Science Association conference, PSA 2016, to be held in Atlanta, USA. The symposium will take place 9-11.45am on Friday 4th November.
Thanks to David Norris for his comment (@davidcnorrismd) as I had indeed missed his review of the recent book Ending Medical Reversal by Vinayak Prasad and Adam Cifu. I now look forward to part 2 of his post as I’m curious to learn about his ideas in part 1 to “move clinical science beyond the Stone Age”.
I think that every academic has had the dispiriting experience of writing what they thought was a good paper, only to have great difficulty publishing it. This post is about one of these – which has been hanging about in my “do something with this, someday” file for four years or so.
