Abstract

I comment on some mistakes made my Dhamija and Rai (Asian J. Bus. Ethics 7:37–52, 2018) in their paper “Role of retaliation and value orientation in whistleblowing intentions.” They fail to correctly interpret the overall model statistics, the F-test, which shows that some of their models have no explanatory power. I explain and give examples to readers on how to avoid this in the future. In addition, I give some suggestions on improving on this, additional issues, as well as an alternative means to interpret the results.
Footnotes
1
My explanations are mostly textbook knowledge. As such, there are many references that one could check. I, personally, suggest Sarstedt and Mooi (2019) for a comprehensive introductory course using SPSS. This may also be seen as my source of reference for the explanations of F-test (chapter 7) and R2 (chapter 7).

In their case, however, saying that the variable does not explain anything or that the entire regression—which only consists of two variables—does not explain the dependent variable may be deemed a very similar interpretation.
