JAMAevidence Users' Guides to the Medical Literature

Dec 5, 2019

Clinical researchers and biostatisticians use highly specialized language to help them discuss statistics and research methods efficiently. In 2019 JAMA published the JAMA Guide to Statistics and Methods, a book of short reviews that translate that specialized language and explain statistics and methods to a broad physician readership. The book's editors and authors, Edward Livingston, MD, and Roger J. Lewis, MD, PhD, discuss their approach to choosing statistical topics and their objectives in compiling the reviews into book format.
