    Seasonal variation and etiologic inferences of childhood pneumonia and diarrhea mortality in India

    Daniel S Farrar et al.
    Nationally-representative verbal autopsies can be linked to seasonal patterns, clinical syndromes, and climate regions to describe novel insights regarding the microbiologic etiologies of childhood pneumonia and diarrhea in India.

    Meta-Research: Centralized scientific communities are less likely to generate replicable results

    Valentin Danchev et al.
    Analysis of data on drug-gene interactions suggests that decentralized collaboration will increase the robustness of scientific findings in biomedical research.

    Sexual dimorphism in trait variability and its eco-evolutionary and statistical implications

    Susanne RK Zajitschek et al.
    Sex differences in trait variability imply that both sexes should be included in biomedical trials, using sex-specific statistical power calculations.

    Standardized mean differences cause funnel plot distortion in publication bias assessments

    Peter-Paul Zwetsloot et al.
    Funnel plots of the Standardized Mean Difference versus the standard error are prone to distortion, leading to false-positive tests for funnel plot asymmetry, and therefore using the Normalised Mean Difference, or a sample size-based precision estimate, are more reliable alternatives.

    Point of View: Hypothesis, analysis and synthesis, it's all Greek to me

    Ioannis Iliopoulos et al.
    Many scientific terms have been borrowed from ancient languages, but their modern usage often overlooks their etymology, as do many new terms coined by scientists.
