Kavanaugh’s accuser is a psychologist/statistician with an h-index of 42

I’m no slave to metrics, but who are you going to believe? Professor Christine Blasey, who’s most cited work is the very useful sounding Sage book on “Statistical Power Analysis in Research“, with 1343 citations since 2015:

With increased emphasis on helping readers understand the context in which power calculations are done, this Second Edition of How Many Subjects? by Helena Chmura Kraemer and Christine Blasey introduces a simple technique of statistical power analysis that allows researchers to compute approximate sample sizes and power for a wide range of research designs. Because the same technique is used with only slight modifications for different statistical tests, researchers can then easily compare the sample sizes required by different designs and tests to make cost-effective decisions in planning a study. These comparisons demonstrate important principles of design, measurement, and analysis that are rarely discussed in courses or textbooks, making this book a valuable instructional resource as well as a must-have guide for frequent reference.

Or a brown-noser like Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who’s most cited work appears to be this hagiographic book review with 75 citations:

    But without underpowered studies with open-ended research hypotheses we would have to close the doors of many departments!

    What’s h-index go to do with credibility? Diederik Stapel also is a psychologist with a high h-index. Maybe we should ask him.

    This site doesn’t function very well when it’s overtly political.
