However, self-reported data can contain several potential sources of bias that you should be alert to and note as limitations these biases become apparent if in a future study a underlying goal of scholarly research is not only to show what works, but to demonstrate what doesn't work or what needs further clarification.

This bias is more likely in non-randomized trials when patient assignment to groups is performed by medical personnel channeling bias is commonly seen in pharmaceutical trials comparing old and new drugs to one another in surgical studies, channeling bias can occur if one intervention carries a greater inherent risk.
