The making of measurement: Editors' introduction.
Calibration, Coherence, and Consilience in Radiometric Measures of Geologic Time
In 2012, the Geological Time Scale, which sets the temporal framework for studying the timing and tempo of all major geological, biological, and climatic events in Earth’s history, had one-quarter of

TLDR
The author tries to shed some light and some clarity on the most popular and debated misunderstandings, particularly about the concepts of error, true quantity value(s), and measured quantity value.

On the validity of methods of uncertainty evaluation
TLDR
The results show that the standard Bayesian procedure and its modifications can perform poorly, and in contrast, the frequentist procedure achieves the required rate of 0.95 while generating intervals of similar width.

This article develops a model-based account of the standardization of physical measurement, taking the contemporary standardization of time as its central case study. To standardize the measurement
Difficulties arising from the representation of the measurand by a probability distribution
This paper identifies difficulties associated with the concept of representing fixed unknown quantities by probability distributions. This concept, which we refer to as the distributed-measurand

Measurement, Models, and Uncertainty
TLDR
This paper characterizes measurement as a knowledge-based process and proposes a framework to understand the function of models in measurement and to systematically analyze their influence in the production of measurement results and their interpretation.
A Bayesian theory of measurement uncertainty
The theory of measurement uncertainty outlined forms the mathematical foundation of the results of international discussions of many years. In contrast to the usual approaches in the literature, it
