New study reveals there are too many new studies

A new study has found that there are just too many new studies. The glut of academic research means the impact of any single piece of research is blunted as each new publication is crowded out, missing out on the attention it may deserve.

The researchers reviewed the life cycle of scientific papers by examining their impact. On the basis of the review they found that interest in published research peaks a few years after release, before rapidly declining.

They further concluded that the tendency of scientific research to sink into oblivion increased from year to year.


It's all the shiny...

A nice brisk walk in nature. How I miss it. Still got two and a half years in this concrete prison.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

There certainly are advantages to tiny towns, a 10 minute walk in any direction takes you to the countryside.

They like to keep humans study able and how the mind reacts
News is programing the same old studys thousands of times over.

Example Wine, coffee. tea, beer, prescription drugs good then bad then bad to good
Even vïäģřå is being sued right now .
So get on the class action study group and let them disect & expose your ailments of your mind & body.

Always be discerning and know how to identify a reliable study.

Quote:When reading a research study, he said, journalists need to ask:
•How good was the study? (Was it peer-reviewed? How large was a sample? Were experiments done in humans?)
•What’s your angle? (Who are you trying to help? Readers, listeners and viewers to make better health-care decisions?)
•Who could benefit? (How many people have the disease? Is it that significant?)
•How effective is the treatment and what are the side effects or complications?
•Who dropped out of the trial and why?
•How much does the new drug or intervention cost? (Hint: you may not get an answer)
•Did the authors disclose their conflict of interests, if any?
•Did the study compare the new treatment to existing alternatives or to placebo? And if so, how much better is his new treatment and how expensive will be?
