The R package statcheck is now on CRAN!

November 2014

Statcheck is an R package that Sacha Epskamp and I wrote together. Statcheck extracts statistics and recomputes p-values. Extremely handy to check your own papers for accidental slip-ups in the result section, but it can also be used to estimate error prevalence across a wide range of scientific articles. So far, statcheck can only read results that are reported exactly in APA style. Note that in order to scan PDF files, you need to have the program pdf-to-txt installed and on your path variable. Furthermore, if you want to run statcheck on a Mac, you need to install XQuartz. For more info, see the project page.
