    Confirmational Response Bias Among Social Work Journals.William M. Epstein - 1990 - Science, Technology and Human Values 15 (1):9-38.
    This article reports the results of a study of confirmational response bias among social work journals. A contrived research paper with positive findings and its negative mirror image were submitted to two different groups of social work journals and to two comparison groups of journals outside social work.
