Increasing the Transparency of Research Papers with Explorable Multiverse Analyses

by Dragicevic P., Jansen Y., Sarma A., Kay M., and Chevalier F.

Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors (CHI '19) | 2019 (to appear)

Short Summary: Introduces explorable multiverse analysis reports, a new approach to statistical reporting where readers of research papers can explore alternative analysis options by interacting with the paper itself. This approach combines multiverse analysis, a philosophy of statistical reporting where paper authors report the outcomes of many different statistical analyses in order to show how fragile or robust their findings are; and explorable explanations, narratives that can be read as normal explanations but where the reader can also become active by dynamically changing some elements of the explanation.
