There are a couple of studies in which I don't agree with the analysis methods but the authors have graciously made the data available.
I'm considering working on some re-analyses of these studies using this publicly-available data. Broadly the structure of these papers is to
- discuss issues in the original analysis,
- propose statistical and causal analysis methods that remedy those issues,
- run the analysis,
- compare and contrast to the original analysis and
- discuss the new implications on domain knowledge due to the improved analysis (if any).
Some of the titles are already quite long, so prepending something like "Re-Analysis of "
<Original_Title>"" seems horribly-verbose. Indeed, any naming method that prepends something to the original title is going to have this problem.
How should I go about titling papers that are essentially a direct response to the methods of a particular study?
