Why the P-value culture is bad and confidence intervals a better alternative.

Ranstam, Jonas LU (2012) In Osteoarthritis and Cartilage 20(8). p.805-808
Abstract
In spite of frequent discussions of misuse and misunderstanding of probability values (P-values) they still appear in most scientific publications, and the disadvantages of erroneous and simplistic P-value interpretations grow with the number of scientific publications. Osteoarthritis and Cartilage prefer confidence intervals. This is a brief discussion of problems surrounding P-values and confidence intervals.
