The F ratio statistic has a numerator and denominator degrees of freedom. Thus, you report: F (numerator_df, denominator_df) = F_value, p = ..., effect size = ... The numerator degrees of freedom relates to the factor of interest; the denominator degrees of freedom corresponds to the degrees of freedom for the error variance. The exact way that these ...

The Journal of Open Psychology Data: A great project spearheaded by Jelte M. Wicherts, longtime open science advocate. Unfortunately, it has only published one paper so far.

Scientific Data: After asking my question, I did a quick search and found one promising journal that will commence in 2014 called Scientific Data. Scientific Data is a new open-access, online-only publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. It introduces a new type of content called the Data Descriptor, which will combine ...

Have you tried: connectomeviewer http://www.connectomeviewer.org/viewer brainnetviewer http://www.nitrc.org/projects/bnv/ which is a toolbox for the SPM software package http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm/ Gephi http://gephi.org/ Trackvis http://trackvis.org/ Also Nico Dosenbach has some amazing picture of brain connectivity in this paper http://www.ncbi....

The numbers inside the parentheses are the degrees of freedom for the F-statistic. The second number is the within-group degrees of freedom. When you have the same number of subjects in all conditions, then the second number will be the number of subjects - the number of cells (conditions) in your design.

General reporting recommendations such as that of APA Manual apply. One should report exact p-value and an effect size along with its confidence interval. In the case of likelihood ratio test one should report the test's p-value and how much more likely the data is under model A than under model B. Example: The data is 7.3, 95% CI [6.8,8.1] times more ...

Nature Neuroscience offers such a possibility. http://www.nature.com/news/nature-journals-offer-double-blind-review-1.16931 See also Does anyone know of any clinical psychology journals that use a double-blind review process?

Due to fact, that I can´t give a comment, I will post an answer, that is not sufficient. However, I hope this might give you little more insight. Furthermore, my knowledge mainly builds on german IQ Tests. 1.) Usually this is done by the institution/person etc., that has developed the IQ test. However, in some cases the parameters aren´t updated. So, you ...

To touch on your broader question, as I understand getting full text publications in conferences are highly respected in computer science. In psychology and neuroscience (note I don't know so much about computational neuroscience), publishing papers in high impact journals is more respected in the field. While some conferences do have full-length papers, ...

I get the impression that good journal editors will get at least one reviewer who is skilled in the methodology used in the paper. The importance of this reviewer role would presumably vary with the statistical or other methodological complexity of the paper. That said, reviewing is well known to be imperfect particularly when it comes to checking all the ...

Unfortunately, I'm not sure there's a quick answer to the exact amount of overlap, but you may be able to get an estimate by comparing the list of journals included in Medline (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/archive/20130415/tsd/serials/lji.html.notice.html) to the list of journals covered by PsycINFO (http://www.apa.org/pubs/databases/psycinfo/coverage.aspx). Also, ...

Answering to my own question: Avogadro is a molecule editor, but for visualization purposes it does not check the validity of the molecule, thus permitting its usage in the creation of publication-quality 3D ball-and-stick models of any subject matter, such as brain connectivity networks. Avogadro reads several molecule file formats, for example .cml is an ...

I've been involved in norming the German version of the WAIS-IV in 2012. The procedure for norming a psychological test is always the same: A representative sample of the whole population is drawn. What differs between tests is how the sample is drawn. For the WAIS-IV, equal numbers of persons where recruited for each age group (in, I believe, 5 year ...

The likelihood ratio test is distributed as χ²with degrees of freedom = the change in degrees of freedom between the two models. So, to give an example dropping one parameter from a model, you would report it like this: χ² (1) = 3.4, p = 0.065

I do not know of any computational neuroscience conference with proceedings that is always held in Europe. Neural information processing systems (NIPS) was held in Europe only once recently, but back in US. (it was in Spain on 2011) International joint conference on neural networks (IJCNN) has minor section on computational neuroscience but it's mostly held ...

This is a subjective question and what is useful would depend on from which domain of cognitive science the article originated. In general, I prefer when the PDF looks like the journal article (i.e., no formatting to indicate links). Here is a list of things that I find useful: Links from in text citations to the location of the full reference Links from ...
