WHY THIS MATTERS
Outdated and exaggerated claims about sex/gender and the brain are far too common
Problems often start with a disconnect between the strength and nature of research findings and the impression created by a narrative.
The risks are growing as a result of mandates to use sex as a biological variable in relevant research and an emphasis on ‘impact’ as a measure of research(er) success.
The guidelines are drawn from Robert P. Abelson’s MAGIC framework for organising a principled argument from quantitative evidence (Abelson, R. P. Statistics as principled argument, 1995, Hillsdale).
