In a previous update (here's the link) we reported a compelling article from Nature News that discussed the caveats and possible fallacies of "classical" 0,05 p-value as a threshold to define significancy in experimental results. 

If, on one hand, lowering this threshold might be a feasible solution to avoid the plague of false evidences, other scientists pointed out that a better solution could be making scientists explain the use of specific p-values while discussing their data.
