A 1994 paper by Jacob Cohen in the journal American Psychologist criticizing the reliance on null hypothesis significance testing in the social sciences. On the same topic, Cohen cites Bill Rozeboom (1960), Paul Meehl (1967), David Bakan (1966), David Lykken (1968), and a book by Morrison and Henkel (1970).

Economists [[Steve Ziliak]] and [[Dierdre McCloskey]] later wrote an excellent book on the topic, [[The Cult of Statistical Significance]].
