We have been thrilled at the response to this endeavor, and are happy to report that over 60 people from across the HCI community have already signed up for this list.
Our next step is to draft a proposal for how to advance transparent statistical communication within HCI. We are sharing a Google Drive with this list that contains two documents towards that end. The first is the draft proposal based on the set of ideas that were discussed at the SIG at CHI earlier this month, and the second is a draft of guidelines for reviewing statistical reports in HCI.
Both documents are deliberately incomplete: we have written introductions to each in order to help frame the conversation, but have left many parts of the rest of the documents in various stages of completeness. We need your help! Do not hesitate to dive into either document and write/edit. Comments within the documents are also helpful, though we think that substantive conversations are probably better conducted on the mailing list (too many comments on a Google doc can get unwieldy).
Thanks again for the overwhelming response!
