I realize this is pedantic and trite, but as a researcher in a field outside of statistics, with limited formal education in statistics, I always wonder if I'm writing "p-value" correctly. Specifically:
- Is the "p" supposed to be capitalized?
- Is the "p" supposed to be italicized? (Or in mathematical font, in TeX?)
- Is there supposed to be a hyphen between "p" and "value"?
- Alternatively, is there no "proper" way of writing "p-value" at all, and any dolt will understand what I mean if I just place "p" next to "value" in some permutation of these options?
