  • Recommendations for reporting histopathology studies: a proposal

Virchows Arch (2015) 466:611–615 DOI 10.1007/s00428-015-1762-3

  • Statistical Literacy Among Academic Pathologists: A Survey Study to Gauge Knowledge of Frequently Used Statistical Tests Among Trainees and Faculty.

Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2017 Feb;141(2):279-287. doi: 10.5858/arpa.2016-0200-OA

  • Pathologists should probably forget about kappa. Percent agreement, diagnostic specificity and related metrics provide more clinically applicable measures of interobserver variability
