Please help: BayesFactor testimonials

I'm compiling a portfolio about the BayesFactor software, and I would love to have short comments (a few sentences to a paragraph) from people who have found the software useful. If you have used the software and you wouldn't mind sending me a short blurb about your experience, I'd love to hear from you! Please send your BayesFactor testimonial to Thanks in advance!


  1. I have always been self conscious about the size of my inference. It seemed so, what can I say, so insignificant. Then I tried the new Bayes factor package, and, boy, what a difference. My inferential logic grew by leaps and bounds. I am a true believer.

  2. The BayesFactor package and it's online material really lowers the bar for entering Bayesian analysis. I've just become a ph.d. using only bayesian inference (no p-values). I used the BayesFactor package to report g-based priors and in turn used this to get an idea of whether my BUGS-derived Bayes factors (using the product space method) were sensible.

    It's also worth noting that the BayesFactor package is the backbone for JASP which I plan to teach instead of SPSS to our graduate and undergraduate students.
