Abstract: Replication crisis and debates about p-values have raised doubts about what we can statistically infer from research findings, both in experimental and observational studies. With a view to the present debate on inferential errors, this paper systematizes and discusses experimental designs with regard to the inferences that can and - perhaps more important - that cannot be made from particular designs.
