Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Intent of reporting standards: Reply to Rossiter (2018).

The article below may contain offensive and/or incorrect content.

In this reply to Rossiter (2018), we note that the goal of developing Journal Article Reporting Standards has been to specify the kinds of information that should be provided to the readers of scientific articles in order to allow maximal understanding of the work being reported—in the case of psychometrics, information that demonstrates the underlying adequacy of the measures used in the research being reported. Although we illustrate some kinds of items that might be utilized to make these demonstrations, the illustrations are not proscriptive. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
