1. Typing error from idea to publication Prof. dr. sc. Mladen Petrovečki Ph.D. Postgraduate Study Zagreb University School of Medicine 2007/08 Logical thinking in scientific work and most frequent errors

3
2. Logic, reasoning www.glasbergen.com/

4
Logic of scientific work Mirko Jakić. Logika. Školska knjiga, Zagreb 2003. 1.rules of logic and logic itself as a way of valid thinking is more expressed in science and philosophy compared to other human activities… 2.science is recognized by utilizing empirical methods and therefore logic is prerequisite in scientific methodology...

5
3.use of is logic evident in using logical reasoning, by using terms such as rules, conclusions, definitions, distributions, proves, etc. 4.logic – how our thinking is valid in our mission to find the truth… Logic of scientific work

6
Logic of “scientific” work

7
Types of logic www.cartoonstock.com

8
3. Unscientific procedures diligence (habit, attitude, manner, believe, momentum) authority intuition

9
More unscientific procedures

10
4. Argument, proof

11
5. Research logic system models of the system deterministic probabilistic event probability p(E) 0 p(E) 1

6. Probability Machiavelli za početnike. Jesenki & Turk, Zagreb

13
Probability, a term mathematical calculation that something, event, will occur mathematic probability theory statistics mathematics scientific methodology logic, philosophy reasoning about event feasibleness

14
Probability, calculation symbol – P No. of expected events P = No. of all events values range 0 – 1: 0 – impossible event 1 – certain event

15
Probability vs. fortune

17
Probability vs. coincidence

18

19
Probability, the term probability vjerojatnost, mogućnost possibility mogućnost, vjerojatnost, izvedivost likelihood vjerojatnost, mogućnost chance mogućnost, prigoda, slučaj, slučajnost, vjerojatnost, sreća, povoljna prilika odds izgled, prednost, vjerojatnost, slučajnost

20
probability calculation probabilistic model of the system 7. Statistics

21
Lord Kelvin (1824.-1907.) James C. Maxwell (1831.-79.) Ludwig Boltzmann (1844.-1906.) Willard Gibbs (1839.-1903.) p = ? Statistical mechanics

22
Statistical asimmetry 10A : 10B 180.000 combinations p = 5,56x10 -6

23
1 : 180.000 Statistical mechanics

24
Second low of thermodynamics closed system: entropy const. entropy disorder (chaos) in closed system is constant or A. Šiber: Red i nered http://eskola.hfd.hr/clanci/entropija/entropija_ as.html

25
population variable knowledge about population ... 8. Measuring & 9. Research

26
10. Variable all variables in research as many of them the end of research simple complex (data) accuracy (numbers) measuring scales

27
11. Measuring scales RATIO ORDINAL NOMINAL INTERVAL

28
12. Error systematic incidental

29
13. Population populationvariable samplestatistical data analysis knowledge on population SAMPLING knowlede on sample

30
14. Sample part of population what? who? when? where? size

31
Sample representative able to be measured probabilistic simple system stratified cluster

32
Sample unrelated related

33
15. Sampling www.statehousereport.com

34
Sampling MedCalc

35
16. Bias (sampling)

36
Bias – systemic sampling error prevalence bias (Neyman) admittance rate bias (Berkson) answering rate bias etc. Bias (sampling)

37
17. Blinding single-blind double-blind triple-blind quadruple-blind

38
Bias, blinding

39
18. Control must have to be compared with experimental group Hawthorn effect research with no control group subject changes behavior with a knowledge that is a part of experiment subject feels better with knowledge to be a part of experiment

40
19. Hypothesis http://nhcs.k12.in.us/nhe/sciencefair/

41
20. Statistical hypothesis uelemental statement utruth or not (false, lie) uhypothesis testing finding the truth Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Kako je Potjeh tražio istinu Mladost, Zagreb; Albert Kinert, 1967.

42
Statistical hypothesis utruth real object state probabilistic system: truth probability usignificant any occasion other that accidentally: probability level of significance

43
21. Null-hypothesis No difference

44
22. Testing the hypothesis A.null-hypothesis B.statistical test C.level of significance D.statistics calculation E.conclusion

45
A. Hypothesis null – H 0 – no difference alternate – H 1 – difference exists only one can be truthful only one can be accepted, other will be rejected

46
B. Choosing the test measuring scales sample size related on unrelated samples data distribution parametric nonparametric no. of variables etc.

48
Paired & unpaired tests

49
C. Level of significance P if defined before statistics – probability of rejecting H 0 when H 0 = is truth -error (type I error or false positive error) as less as possible default values, e.g. P<0,05

50
24. Statistical errors

51
D. Statistics computation... P = exact value three decimals P > 0,05

27. Yes & No in statistics hypothesis = ? calculation = ? correct data = ? all conditions for statistic valid = ? no limitations = ?
