There are 100 clinical trials. I have 95% confidence and report five of them that are successful. Then, I claim my drug works.
What is this called, when I only publish good results and rely purely on random error? It's publication bias, but there must be a general term.
The proportion of clinical trials published within 24 months of study completion ranged from 10.8% (4/37) to 40.3% (31/77) across academic medical centers, whereas results reporting on ClinicalTrials.gov ranged from 1.6% (2/122) to 40.7% (72/177)
Do they seriously have 95% confidence and report 5% of results?
