Abstract:

From the multitude of methods applied in research the potential list of thresholds from fact to artifact is practically limitless. The marginal areas occurring from electrical interference in signalnoise ratios, from background radiation in isotope applications, or from the use of three-dimensional hypotheses with two-dimensional observations are among the countless examples that could be cited. The communication specialist with awareness and comprehension of cause and effect in investigative procedures, utilizing photographic science and technology as the vehicle of end result, can greatly minimize or offset the occurrence of potential artifacts.
