  annote = {"Using a Bayesian decision framework, it is shown that there is no reason to double the p-value when moving from a one-sided to a two-sided test. Within the classical framework, it is shown that the doubling of the p-value results from a discontinuity due to testing a point null hypothesis. A three-decision rule, credited to Neyman or Wald, is presented that does not require the doubling of the p-value, and is consistent with a Bayesian approach. For most comparative clinical trials the three-decision rule is appropriate, and its use would abolish the controversy over one-sided tests."}
