Reporting Priors for Bayesian Analyses
I recently submitted a paper including BFs calculated with JASP.
In the methods section I referred to the "default" prior settings. However, a reviewer asked for a concrete description of the priors.
I wonder whether the following is a correct way of putting it:
"All data analyses were conducted with the statistics software JASP (version 0.8.6.0, JASP Team, 2018) and it’s default settings for Bayesian analyses: I.e., Bayesian repeated measures ANOVAs were computed with a multivariate Cauchy prior with a fixed effects scale factor of r = 0.5, and a random effects scale factor of r = 1. Bayesian paired t-tests were computed with a Cauchy prior with a width of r = 0.707. Priors were centered on zero."
Thanks alot for the help.
