Author's response to Unjournal evaluations of “Replicability & Generalisability: A Guide to CEA discounts"

I [Rosie] am hugely grateful to the reviewers for their time and expertise, and agree with many (though not all) of their comments. For context, these guidelines are not a published paper, but are WIP internal guidelines that we use at FP to estimate internal and external validity rankings across different RCTs. I'm especially pleased that Unjournal chose to review it, as it is often difficult to get reviews of this style of work

I unfortunately can't engage more at present without dropping on really high-priority work, but I hope to respond more fully in the next few months; I am keen to find and test different methods of estimating effect size inflation and Type S error. I would view it as a hugely positive thing if the reviewers (or other readers) have uncovered superior ways of estimating these metrics—especially methods that are practical for time-pressured decision and policy-makers. I hope that this prompts more discussion in this area.

[Manager’s note: if and when the author adds a further response, we will include it here.]
