Here is ours: we refer in this article to “science” as a convenient shorthand for investigations using data to study questions of interest. This includes social science, engineering, digital humanities, finance, and so on. Statisticians are not shy about reminding administrators that statistical science has an impact on nearly every part of almost all organizations... Among the many articles reporting on the ASA’s statement on p-values, we particularly liked a quote from biostatistician Andrew Vickers in [21]: “Treat statistics as a science, not a recipe.” This is a great candidate for Rule 0.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/ten-simple-rules-effective-statistical-practice", "reader_count"=>928, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Unspecified"=>19, "Professor > Associate Professor"=>43, "Librarian"=>3, "Researcher"=>256, "Student > Doctoral Student"=>51, "Student > Ph.
