An Examination of Publication Bias in an International Journal of Information Technology in Education
Computers in the Schools Volume 24, Number 1, ISSN 0738-0569
Publication bias refers to a tendency to publish articles with significant results over publications with nonsignificant results. In this article we first review the literature of publication bias focusing on the three major determinants (file drawer significance, file drawer effect size, and file drawer sample size) and two interrelated sources (the editors and researchers) of publication bias. We then present a study that examined the publication bias of an international peer-reviewed journal in the field of information technology in education. All original submissions from that journal over a six-year period were examined. Comparisons were performed and no significant difference was found between accepted and rejected manuscripts on their significance, effect size, and sample size. Findings did not provide any evidence of editorial publication bias. Suggestions for further studies are discussed.
