The Future of Scientific Research: Going Beyond the P-value

A combination of three things; lack of causal relationship, lack of applicability in the field and lack of repeatability. Researchers commonly question the ‘why’; why does something behave the way it does? This is why we establish study protocols where we control as many of the potential confounding factors as we can, exposing one group of animals to the factor of interest and measure the outcome. When all is said and done, we conclude that ‘when we applied factor X, we either are likely to obtain outcome Z, or we are not’. When this association exists, it is commonly assumed by researchers to be a causal relationship, oblivious of the other criteria necessary to determine that a causal relationship really exists. This is one of the major flaws in research today
