Incorrect Figure FREE

JAMA. 1998;280(14):1232. doi:10.1001/jama.280.14.1232.

In the Peer Review article entitled "Positive-Outcome Bias and Other Limitations in the Outcome of Research Abstracts Submitted to a Scientific Meeting," published in the July 15, 1998, issue of THE JOURNAL (1998;280:254-256), the Figure was printed with the incorrect inset graph. The inset graph should be a linear plot of the studies accepted for presentation, not a log axis plot. Figure 1 is correct as shown here.

Graphic Jump Location
Funnel plot of all 122 prospective studies submitted to the meeting that reported effect sizes (see text). Studies subsequently accepted for presentation at the meeting are plotted separately from those rejected. Inset graph similarly shows results for all submitted research with effect-size data at the journal publication level. The absence of the left (negative) base of the inverted funnel region suggests the presence of selection bias in favor of positive outcomes.
