  1. pmc Do baseline P-values follow a uniform distribution in randomised trials?
    Martin Bland
    Department of Health Sciences, University of York, York, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 8:e76010. 2013
    ..The theory has been put forward that if a null hypothesis is true, P-values should follow a Uniform distribution. This can be used to check the validity of randomisation...

    Hugh MacPherson
    Department of Health Sciences, University of York, York, UK
    Trials 14:209. 2013
    ..We propose to evaluate the effect of Alexander Technique lessons and acupuncture in a rigorously conducted pragmatic trial with an embedded qualitative study...

    Huiqin Yang
    Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, University of York, York YO10 5DD, UK
    BMC Med Inform Decis Mak 13:62. 2013

    J Martin Bland
    University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD, UK
