Title: The Replicability Crisis in Science: It's Not the P-values' Fault
Author(s): Yoav Benjamini*+
Companies: Tel Aviv University
Keywords: False Coverage Rate ; Post Selection Inference ; Conditional Inference ; Random Laboratory Model ; Animal Behavior

The use of p-values is condemned in some current responses to the replicability crisis. I shall argue that (i) selective inference and (ii) taking a restrictive view on the variability, are the fundamental statistical obstacles to replicability. The first is manifested across all fields of science, the second more common in preclinical animal research. I shall highlight available statistical remedies, and some new ones, that could be used by the scientist reporting the results of a single study.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
