The Importance of Proper Controls

As stated in the News and Views section of the site, proper controls in research are quite important. One must choose them carefully as they are usually the basis of much of the data in a study.

There have been quite a few studies published that lack proper controls. When you are preparing on in the process of conducting a study, make sure you take time to pick the proper controls, as often it is difficult to go back and re-analyze the data.

Best of luck,
Admin
