A published article contains these 2 sentences:
"Moreover, misreporting may be caused by the application of incorrect rules or by a lack of knowledge of the statistical test. For example, the total df in an ANOVA may be taken to be the error df in the reporting of an F test, or the researcher may divide the reported p value of a $\chi^2$ or F test by two, in order to obtain a one-sided p value, whereas the p value of a $\chi^2$ or F test is already a one-sided test."

Why might they have said that? Chi-Squared is a two-sided test. (I have asked one of the authors, but gotten no response.)
Am I overlooking something?
