Multiple imputation for missing data in epidemiological and clinical research: potential and pitfalls
The appropriate use and reporting of the multiple imputation approach to dealing with missing data is described by Jonathan Sterne and colleagues.
Statistical tests, P values, confidence intervals, and power: a guide to misinterpretations
Misinterpretation and abuse of statistical tests, confidence intervals, and statistical power have been decried for decades, yet remain rampant. A key problem is that there are no interpretations of…

In infants born at 25-to-28-weeks' gestation, early nasal CPAP did not significantly reduce the rate of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia, as compared with intubation, and fewer infants received oxygen at 28 days, and they had fewer days of ventilation.
Standardized interpretation of paediatric chest radiographs for the diagnosis of pneumonia in epidemiological studies.
Using standardized definitions and training, it is possible to achieve agreement in identifying Radiological pneumonia, thus facilitating the comparison of results of epidemiological studies that use radiological pneumonia as an outcome.
Beyond Power Calculations
The largest challenge in a design calculation: coming up with reasonable estimates of plausible effect sizes based on external information is discussed, and design calculations in which the probability of an estimate being in the wrong direction and the magnitude of an effect might be overestimated are recommended.

This paper reviews the use of more specialized regression methods for twin data, based on generalized least squares or linear mixed models, and explains the relationship between these methods and the commonly used approach of analysing within-twin-pair difference values.
