The paper investigates the question of whether or not determinations of the distance between the Sun and the Galactic center R0 are affected by the so-called “bandwagon effect”, leading to selection effects in published data that tend to be close to expected values, as was suggested by some authors. It is difficult to estimate numerically a systematic uncertainty in R0 due to the bandwagon effect; however, it is highly probable that, even if widely accepted values differ appreciably from the… Expand
