Most of the research papers are strictly using a p-value to describe a significant value but omitting a confidence interval. Now a day, the publishers are demanding the effect size in terms of confidence interval which is more meaningful than a p-value. Introduction of the confidence interval in the research paper will limit the misinterpretation of p-values. This article will help the readers understand the importance of confidence interval while reporting a mean and standard deviation in their article.
