    stating the obvious their methods of gathering and analysing data have always been flawed . It makes me wonder why it takes four authors for this paper is it because of the equally flawed system that demands that academics publish papers regardless of the quality to keep income streams . damn I have only just realised it is a blog .

    I tried to read the article, but I get about 2 paragraphs down and my screen suddenly fills with a big thing saying Science for the Curious, Space Medicine Environment. Every time I try it this happens. I don't think they want me to read it!

    Thanks, @Arnie Pye. I'd forgotten I had zoomed in to make the print bigger and easier to read, so the x was off my screen. Once I zoomed it out again the x re-appeared like magic. :)

    Here's the paper referred to in the blog.
    http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2018/06/15/1711978115.long

    Lack of group-to-individual generalizability is a threat to human subjects research
    Aaron J. Fisher, John D. Medaglia, and Bertus F. Jeronimus
    PNAS June 18, 2018. 201711978; published ahead of print June 18, 2018.

    I've split it into short paragraphs for easier reading.

    The rest of the paper is paywalled.
