This software "Peer Review Tool - Data Analysis" is intended to enhance the analytic skills and competency of peer reviewers to judge the appropriateness of statistical reporting and to avoid common statistical mistakes, thus improving the quality of the peer review process. Though the peer reviewers of journal articles are the primary audience, the Tool can also be a statistical tool for any level of researchers, as well as graduate students who are embarking on a research path. Administrators, clinical staff, post-docs, and other personnel who are involved with research can also benefit from the Tool.
The topics of this Tool include six most common statistical procedures:
- logistic regression
- linear regression
- factorial analysis of variance
- analysis of covariance
- repeated analysis of variance
- multivariate analysis of variance.
