    Statistical errors. P values, the gold standard of statistical validity, are not as reliable as many scientists assume. P values have always had critics. In their almost nine decades of existence, they have been likened to mosquitoes (annoying and impossible to swat away), and the emperor's new clothes (fraught with obvious problems that everyone ignores). One researcher suggested rechristening the methodology 'statistical hypothesis inference testing,' presumably for the acronym.

Researchers find the biggest risk factor for nearsightedness isn't looking at screens or reading books, it's a lack of exposure to bright light, like outdoors. The leading hypothesis: Light releases dopamine in the retina and blocks deformation.

Revolutionary method for probing molecular structure unravels

The cost of publishing: journal prices vary with influence and business model - and cheap open-access journals raise questions about the value publishers add for their money. #OA #open Nature Publishing Group Credit: Nature

Should we set limits on what science can probe? Are some areas too questionable to investigate? Nature explores taboo genetics - the genetics of IQ, race, sexuality and violence - and the scientists that have crossed the red line to work on them. A poll asks if you think each of these areas should be off-limits to scientists... Nature Publishing Group

In 1959, physicist and Nobel prizewinner Richard Feynman set scientists a goal of imaging to a resolution of 0.1 Angstrom - smaller than the radius of an atom. In 2013, researchers working in electron microscopy say we might not ever reach that goal, despite hitting 0.5 Angstroms a few years ago.... why?
