Reading analyses done by others is very fruitful as it saves time and resources. However one usually asks oneself the question how reliable the analyses are. In this paper the authors analyze two very similar studies and identify that similar studies have biases and can come to different results.

The paper is interesting for those of us who read systematic reviews and mappings (guilty as charged, sic!)
