Abstract: Areas of Agreement There are three primary areas in which we agree with James H. Bray (1994) and Ross D. Parke (1994). The first, and perhaps the most important, area of agreement is the desirability of researchers publishing a single, integrative, and comprehensive journal article from one data set. This approach is most likely to advance knowledge in family psychology because in this way readers will gain the broadest possible perspective on findings from an entire study. In contrast, authors who publish multiple journal articles from the same data set take the risk that those who read only one of the multiple journal articles will gain a limited, narrow, and possibly even a misleading view of their work. Thus, publishing multiple journal articles from the same data set should be done with great caution and only when our two proposed criteria are met.
