JASP is statistically inclusive as it offers both frequentist and Bayesian analysis methods. Indeed, the primary motivation for JASP is to make it easier for statistical practitioners to conduct Bayesian analyses. We firmly believe that Bayesian statistics deserves to be applied more often and more widely than it is today, and that there is more to statistical inference than the frequentist p-value. A pragmatist may argue that –irrespective of one’s statistical convictions– it is prudent to report the results from both paradigms; when the results point in the same direction, this bolsters one’s confidence in the conclusions, but when the results are in blatant contradiction, this will weaken one’s confidence.
