Association between REMARK score and significance level of studies. a Box plot comparing the REMARK score between studies that reported statistically significant findings versus studies that did not report statistically significant findings (Mann-Whitney test, p = 0.005). b Dot plot showing that there was, however no significant correlation between the REMARK score and the reported p values (Pearson’s correlation coefficient = 0.0543, p value = 0.499). c Dot plot depicting that for the reported survival analyses, we found a stronger, but still statistically not significant correlation between the number of patients used and the reported p values (Pearson’s correlation coefficient = 0.1814, p value = 0.051)
