Title: The Optimal Threshold P-Value for a Scientific Journal
Author(s): Donald B. Macnaughton*
Companies: MatStat Research Consulting, Inc
Keywords: relationship between variables; statistical significance; scientific hypothesis testing

A scientific journal that publishes data-based research papers can use a threshold p-value as a "gateway" to publication for submitted papers. The gateway helps the journal to maximize the long-run scientific and social benefits of the research papers it publishes. A constructive graphical argument shows that the optimal threshold p-value for a scientific journal exists.

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